Text Prompt

Write a poem using at least 5 of the following 10 words/phrases.

Still Life


Upon the old oak stump

is nailed a make-shift table

covered with a linen scarf and—

set with these:

An empty wine glass towering, globalement—

a plate of cheddar cheese,

antique satchel

yellowed by time,

filled with bitter herbs,

And there also—

an open hardback

to be read

of Emily’s  Returning.

Knitting life into one space—

by wild sunflower framing.

Far from the sounds of city pavement.

Still life there—
