NPM – 16 of 30

prompt: pick up a book, turn to page 29, select ten words you like, then write a poem using those ten words
(slightly changed it up by closing my eyes and randomly selecting words)

The Road Home

misshapen hackberry tree
gives shade in bitter sunlight

ponderosa pines line road
like rebellious teens

facts mixed with time
creates an uneven batter
that tastes different
to everyone

and the penniless horses
whinnied for more

~~
book: The Road Home by Jim Harrison
words: misshapen, mixed, horses, fact, time, bitter, ponderosa, rebellious, penniless
