A Tribute to Frank Prem

Today I highlight the work of poet Frank Prem. I’ve enjoyed Frank’s poetry since my first days of blogging and have been inspired to write responses twice.

He possesses the unique gift of speaking in the voice of the objects he writes about; in movement and poignancy.

The following is my paltry attempt at mimicry, so you might all experience his style:

rain (in season)

I am a piece
of gray
a mist
a cloud


I am a drip
a tear
from North Wind’s eye

don’t go
he cries


I am
the autumn rain


oh please
don’t go

  1. Nice work, Chelsea.

    Thank you so much for the tribute to my work. This creation of poetry that sings for other people is a wonderful pursuit and I’m very thankful to be able to pursue it and have good folk like yourself take an interest and follow what I’m doing.

    Thank you, again, for that gift.
