Intuition comes as a shard
and pierces mind or hands or sides
depending on the kind
It is sharp
It punctures flesh with fragments
of knowing
and meets us where the brain
intersects pleasure and pain
then stops us there
leaving us peripherally enlightened
and aware
I know this to be true
because years ago
I was pierced
at a slant
with the totality of you
Today's NaPoWriMo prompt from readwritepoem was all about intuition...


  1. Great denouement..'totality of you' catches the reader in one fell swoop, Erin.

  2. Super poem, Erin and a great picture to go with it. You heighten the senses with your choice of words.
