#276: Paradox–a Double Elevenie

tillamookrocklighthouse_mid-res_mini

On day 23 of National Poetry Writing Month, I’m back to the suggested prompts: Here are the instructions for an “Elevenie” from Napowrimo: “The first line is one word, a noun. The second line is two words that explain what the noun in the first line does, the third line explains where the noun is in three words, the fourth line provides further explanation in four words, and the fifth line concludes with one word that sums up the feeling or result of the first line’s noun being what it is and where it is.”

 

Solitude
stands alone
near the ocean,
whispering nothing to itself:
needful.

Community
comes together
near the ocean,
bolstering each new solitude:
indispensable.
