NaPoWriMo Day 20 – Kennings

kenning is way of saying something without using the actual word…but rather a description of the object.  For example, the ocean might be called a “whale road”.  Here’s my attempt at writing a poem with some kennings in it (for NaPoWriMo)

when sleep pictures disturb your night-time rest
and your feather bag beneath your head won’t mold
to a shape that is pleasing,
arise and gather your word wand and write
and in the morn, you’ll be surprised
at the giberish on the page
