I Take It Back

This week’s Meeting The Bar challenge at dVerse Poets Pub is to write a Palinode. I never heard of palinodes until our host, Grace, filled me in today:
“A palinode or palinody is an ode or song that retracts or recants a view or sentiment to what the poet wrote in a previous poem.”

So:
My original poem: From failed haiku – A journal of American Senryu
Vol 6 Issue 61 (Online) January 2021

black ink
in dark rooms
disappears

My Palinode:

night becomes morning
–nothing ever vanishes–
writ remains written
