NaPoWriMo – Day 19 (Erasure)

Today’s National Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo) prompt is: Write a paragraph that briefly recounts a story or scene. Now try erasing words from this paragraph to create a poem or, alternatively, use the words of your paragraph to build a new poem.

I decided to use the paragraph from my Haibun I wrote earlier in this challenge. Here is the result of erasing some words to create a poem.

Wild sky
burning stars
smelling like
melting dust
hissing across
rocks until
dissolving
in the sun.
