Black-Out or Erasure Poetry
sunk into deep ground—
the womb of Mother Earth—
focal point of prayer.
An unlikely place
Anasazi—a Navajo tribe of Native Americans located in the Four Corners where the states of Arizona, New Mexico, Utah and Colorado meet in the southwestern United States.
Kiva—underground chambers that became the center of spiritual and community life.

Linked to Bjorn’s prompt at dVerse Poets Meeting the Bar. This is from a stunning coffee table book so, for obvious reason, I didn’t do the black out visual and the book is too large to copy on my printer.
Please join us at the Pub for some amazing poetry. This is a good form to get back in the groove if your muse was idle during the holidays–as mine was.
