Between the Cracks

Beautiful, beautiful poem.


NaPoWriMo Day 6 – Go to a book you love. Find a short line that strikes you. Make that line the title of your poem. Write a poem inspired by the line. Then, after you’ve finished, change the title completely.

I chose the line "places remember what people forget" from the book Overstory by Richard Powers

between the cracks

the place between the cracks
remembers what people forget,
fields of green
that came before
we poured the concrete
made our home

and much to our surprise
seedlings find their way
to claim a space

yet we feign surprise
at life that dares to live,
to remind us of what we have forgot
and more than naught
we declare a weed
and rip that life asunder
