Today's challenge asks us to borrow a line from a friend's poem and use it as inspiration to write a surrealist poem.
Surrealism might elude me, but I can understand borrowing.
I have chosen my first line from the last stanza of Mary Mansfield's poem Driven to Perform on yesterday's personal challenge at the Garden.
To go with my submission, I have borrowed a photo from the poetry blog of Brenda Bryant, surely Australia's most prolific (and entertaining) poet.
Thanks, Kenia. Thanks, Mary. Thanks, Brenda.
it’s just two sides of the same coin,
the real and the surreal
and which is more real
I’ll surely never know
the inside and the outside
the night and the following day
are both dawn for an instant
until night goes away
