Poem 20150421

#NaPoWriMo’s prompt for today has me leaving things out:

Our prompt for today (optional, as always) is an old favorite – the erasure! This involves taking a pre-existing text and blacking out or erasing words, while leaving the placement of the remaining words intact.


the earth was darkness
the surface of the deep was moving

over the surface
light separated from the darkness

in the midst of the waters
the expanse separated below from above

the heavens teem with swarms of living creatures

let fly the great sea monsters
and multiply, beasts of the earth

god creeps on the ground

man in our image,
according to our likeness
male and female

subdue and rule the sea
the sky
the earth

      And just to let you know, I’m a mister, not a Madam. The Internet is a confusing place.
