At dVerse Sarah is hosting poetics with an invitation to use repetition or anaphora in a poem, using one word from a list of nine verbs, I chose – lose.
“Losing an illusion makes you wiser than finding a truth.” Ludwig Borne
Finding To lose is a paradox like celebrating a death of the closely loved. To lose is never what it seems at first light, as the day draws long all is reversal. To lose is the possibility of beginnings beyond ordinary imagining. To lose is to find oneself in the thwart of resist, an overcoming push, or two. To lose is the discovery of circles and cycles, a rhythm of parallels. To lose is to gorge as an aesthete, to sup without striving. To lose is an unconventional contentment of finding.
