NaPoWriMo 2017 Day Twenty Four – Of Medieval Monks and Marginalia

Who knew monks doodled while they worked? Monday’s prompt suggests that we take our poetry inspiration from this particular kind of art.

Looking at some of those medieval doodles, I see a very real struggle between the serious and the frivolous, the sacred and the profane; evidence that no matter what strictures religion tries to control it with, humanity (nature) will find a way.

I liked the double elevenie style from yesterday so much, I’m going to try it again.

Crisis of Faith

Christ
Favored son
