IMMERSED

For my final entry in The Unofficial Jill Corcoran Original Poem Poetry Week I present IMMERSED.

IMMERSED
Last night I plunged
into the deep
rich white space

between what is written and
what I envision

between where ink stops and
imagination begins.

Last night I stayed
up into the
wee
wee
hours
reading
reading
reading
a book.

  1. Love it, Jill! I love being so immersed in a book that you have no clue what is going on around you.
    I enjoyed your week of original poetry!

  2. between what is written and what I envision: how apt for readers and writers.

    I stayed up late last night too!

  3. Thanks Kelly, Yat-Yee and Douglas.

    When I read those truly special books, I am so immersed I have a difficult time re-orienting myself back into reality.

    This is one of the poems that didn't make it into Lee's I AM THE BOOK. The poem that did, PIRATES, has a similar idea but a completely different take on the subject. Now if 2011 would hurry up and arrive you can all read it in beautifully illustrated print:)

  4. Isn't it fun to fall completely into a book that way? I love how the last stanza sinks down with you!
