A Shred of Days


A shred of days

Soon capsizes in oceans

Of departure


This poem was written for Carpe Diem Ghost Writer #32, A Dream Within A Dream, another great prompt hosted by Chèvrefeuille at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai. In this prompt our guest writer, Jen from Blog It Or Lose It, presented us with “A Dream within a Dream” by Edgar Allan Poe, and asked for our responses. All of the poems in the link-up can be read here. Meanwhile, here’s a wistful Kinks song about days (complete with some classic 1960s BBC radio commentary).
