NaPoWriMo Day 29: Plath inspiration

Today, we’d like to challenge you to write a poem based on the Plath Poetry Project’s calendar. Simply pick a poem from the calendar, and then write a poem that responds or engages with your chosen Plath poem in some way.

White China, Black Gorse
after Plath’s “The Rabbit Catcher”

High over sea
out of wind
narrow path
into flowered shade
of waning life.

Birth and death.
white china, black gorse,
wall of light
erased as traps snap,
barren of prey.

of birth-death shrieks,
or shrieks=absence of silence?

Mind-wrought wires bind tight.
