Madness

Our theme for this term’s Creative Writing Group is Light and Dark. Last week our tutor read the following line from The Prophet by Kahil Gibran.

“The owl whose night bound eyes are blind unto the day cannot unveil the mystery of light”

Then he asked us to write no more than 14 lines inspired by this. I wrote

 

Unheard, unfelt

apparitions flit

from cavernous recesses

dark and deep.

Wonders unbeknown

star burst horizons,

confusing coronas

blast our rods and cons

exploding myths

as Tam O’Shanter tales

run riot in a chemical deception.
