Reader Poem — Henry Medina

Henry Medina writes:
I was inspired by the CA Conrad (Soma)tic Poetry prompt, “Confetti Allegiance,” where one poet celebrates another. Specifically I enjoyed CAConrad’s poem “Love Letter to Jim Brodey.” In response, I wrote a poem to CAConrad.

Invitation to CA Conrad

Let’s say the obvious
so our lives
resemble art

In the crucible of our being
let’s create
and stories

Let’s create nothing
the things emerge
damp from our souls

Let’s tell our hearts
to unlearn fear
to recount yesterday

Let’s be
little rivers of water
the defects of our lives

Let’s change something
so its wave of effects
will lift us

Let’s wash
away with the present

find the ending first
before the beginning
