Sarah is the host for dVerse today. Sarah has asked us to write a poem about the experience of visiting a market.

Today’s poem is in blitz form, as I think it gives a sense of activity and can cover a lot of description in it, both of which are needed for the market experience.

    1. It’s funny you should describe it that way, Grace, as it is how I feel when I go to the market on the busy days. It’s too much. I prefer going on the slower days.


    1. Hi Sabio, long time no see. Nice to see you again. When you say the illusion of community, do you think that market-goers aren’t a community? I tend to think that those who choose to shop at the fresh food market are.


  1. The blitz poem is a new form for me, Jade, which Iโ€™d like to try some time when Iโ€™m back writing full-time again. Itโ€™s evocative and busy and I like the repetition and pace. I especially enjoyed the sweet peas and strawberries, and the candles!

    1. Thank you, Kim, yes it is a fun form. In the case of this one I was thinking market as I wrote it, but another fun way to do it is pick any simple phrase for the first line, then let it wander where it will.

  2. Hi Jade! Very wonderful work! Honest expression shared openly. I am having an existential crisis tonight. I invite you to come visit me, cross my bridge of dreams, and listen to Joni sing like an angel!

    1. Thank you for your thoughtful comment. Thank you for the invitation on the bridge of dreams. Just read it and commented on your profound poem. And yes, Joni’s accompaniment on the bridge walk is perfect.
