An orb with no end
No clue as to exactly what lies within
A feast for a small tummy
An accompaniment to the main event
For the grown amongst us
we want – if not need – more than that
Keep me safe until I am ready
Until my lungs are grown
Until the good air can sustain me
No defence against the tile floor
Smithereens I am now
Slipped between clumsy fingers
Oh, the joyous result
when mixed with sugar, flour, butter
and baked for all to enjoy
– with frosting aboard
and candles of course
This was my home, Mama!
How did i fit in there?
Why didn’t I break it?
Oh, I do love a challenge! Tonight, on dVerse Meeting the Bar, Bjorn invites us to adopt a cubist approach as we write about an every day object. As Bjorn explains:
“Cubism is first of all not abstract, but another form of realism. The pioneers were Pablo Picasso and George Braque who started to explore reality using the following starting points.
Break the concept of perspective, something that had been around at least since the renaissance.
Break the picture into simplified objects with clear borders in between. These forms were often done as geometric object, each of them simplified and with clear borders between them.”
So, we are invited to apply these concepts and adapt them to writing a poem!
I enjoyed writing about eggs on Tuesday, so I thought I would continue – I hope you enjoy it, and I hope I have managed to achieve what Bjorn has asked of us!
Please do head on over to dVerse, read, enjoy and rise to the challenge!
