W3 Prompt #33; In with an atom

Wea’ve Written Weekly

I am trying the W3 prompt again this week from The Skeptic’s Kaddish. The Poet of the Week, and therefore our prompter, is the host himself, Ben Alexander, who would have us write a series of at least five atom” tercets on the theme of “children” or “childhood”. An atom has at least one tercet (three line stanza); 5-7-5 letters per line; no punctuation; no capitalization (like haiku). Counting letters instead of words or syllables made this a frustrating challenging form.

Dream Seeds by D. Avery

child 
of woods
knows

trees
whisper 
to her

hears 
animals
speak

seeks
her star
dream

seeds
gathers
to sow

feeds
on words
grows

sings
becomes
a bird

soars
returns
knows
