2013 Day 26 – Dark

O dark
the dark spaces,
vacant of letters,
art of lost action.
my soul, let darkness be changed
into silence
only conscious of
hope for love
For faith
for dancing
and lightning
laughter echoed

Notes: today’s prompt was to write an erasure, where you take a poem and erase words and lines while leaving the remaining words in order to make a new poem. I’ve used a chunk out of East Coker – I’ve highlighted the words I’ve kept rather than erasing the others so you can see the original.
