#5

Napowrimo April 18th, 2022

Today’s prompt is based on Faisal Mohyuddin’s poem “Five Answers to the Same Question.” The challenge being to write our own poem that provides five answers to the same question – without ever specifically identifying the question that is being answered.

Aon
He leaves you breathless
Frigid is this harsh lover
Crisp are hoar’s kisses

Dhà
Crystallised waters
Pink skies gift confetti gifts
Presents for daughters

Trì
Flames in the darkness
Equinox to be marked
This day we feel blessed

Ceithir
Death links the circle
Reincarnation is best
Life rides a cycle

Còig
When Snowdrops fade green
Epitaphs written in lawns
Sleep now till next seen
