Poetry Friday: Demeter by H.D.

October 13th, 2017 (06:00 am)

Current Mood: awake
Current Song: Human by Gabrielle Aplin

Do you ask for a scroll,
parchment, oracle, prophecy, precedent;
do you ask for tablets marked with thought
or words cut deep on the marble surface,
do you seek measured utterance or the mystic trance?

- selected lines from Demeter by H.D.

Beautiful, I like the mystic trance, maybe because I like to meditate–though the scrolls and parchments would be good too, thanks!

Right now, I'm simultaneously writing one thing in a Word document and scribbling another thing on scratch paper.
