Absence (NaPoWriMo)

Plumblines are useless
naked eyes can’t see
colourless chaos
swirling within

corralled in a small space
a brobdingnagian,
bottomless void;
absence does that

sitting by the phone
willing it to ring
for a voice to fill it
pain drips slowly

Today’s challenge is to write a poem about a very large thing. It could be a mountain or a blue whale or a skyscraper or a planet.

  1. Waiting is always difficult, if not always painful. A big word, a small space and the waiting is palpable.

    corralled in a small space
    a brobdingnagian,
    bottomless void;
    absence does that
