NaPoWriMo Poetry Challenge Day 11: An Abstract Poem

Today, I challenge you to write a poem in which you closely describe an object or place, and then end with a much more abstract line that doesn’t seemingly have anything to do with that object or place, but which, of course, really does… an abstract, philosophical kind of statement closing out a poem that is otherwise intensely focused on physical, sensory details.


Big and comfortable

it envelops me in

a cozy embrace.

Four sides but not a wall;

However, just as sturdy.

Soft white pillows

beckon me into its warmth

for some respite.

It’s the best part of my night

and my most-missed in the morning.

Winter time makes it more precious.
