Refluent--Flowing Back

"And in haste the refluent ocean / Fled away from the shore and left the line of the sand-beach / Covered with waifs of the tide…." — Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Evangeline, 1847 

Refluent is the word of the day. I couldn't possibly put this word to use in a more effective way than Longfellow, but I will try. 

Words has flown
around my page
from pen 
from key
from me
to you
from my mind's eye
to my marked notebook
they have flowed
in the receding waves
of my heart
to the refluent winds
of my soul. 

Happy March 31st, the final day of SOSLC 2015.

  1. Wow that's a cool word. Thanks for sharing Longfellow - and your own use. I'll probably be using it in my dreams trying to write my own poem. You know - because I like the challenge!

  3. Your poem is so fluttery and describes writing in such a perfect way. Sometimes those words just flow to you and other times the elusively flow away.
