“It is life’s work to recognise the mystery of the obvious”

Jim Harrison- Songs of Unreason


….and as a hot sun beats but doesn’t burn
and angry oceans pummel stoic rocks 
-so life rears its fist at our very beings

Observe that submission is not in play
recognise the symbolism for what it is
learn lessons from life’s closed fist or open palm

..there’s deeper meaning in the simple things

Day 28 of 28 Days of Unreason

This marks the final poem in Jilly’s “28 Days of Unreason”; writing to poetry inspired by Jim Harrison.

It’s been like sitting in a Ph.D class with Masters of poetry and I’ve loved every minute of it!
