Poetry Challenge 2019 - Week 35 PoemWeek 35 words from @poetpre: dazzling, mirror, oasis, constellation and reconnaissance.


the sunlight shimmers

on the surface of the mirage

a dazzling mirror of life

reflecting all you've hidden

- no oasis here


in her eyes reflected

a constellation

yet to be mapped

by a human reconnaissance



Here are the words and my poem for the thirty-fifth week of the 2019 Poetry Challenge.

This poem wrote itself. It happens sometimes - the words come and I write them down, a conduit for inspiration and ideas. I'm not sure what it means, I leave that up to you to decipher and decide. This one was a gift and I for one am not questioning my muse or counting horse's teeth. I advise you to do the same should you ever find yourself in my position. 

If you want to join the 2019 Poetry Challenge, head on over to my Instagram account (@indraniperera) where I post the words for the week on Mondays (mostly) in my story. Write a poem and post it. Be sure to tag me and use the hashtags #2019poetrychallenge and #livepoetsclub.

If you don't want to write a poem, you can still be part of the 2019 Poetry Challenge. Send me five random words and I'll use them in a poem. Either DM me on Instagram with the words or send me an email (indrani at indraniperera dot com).

Happy writing!
