Day 3 is Sarah Dunster's poem "Germination."
On our podcast discussion of the Lit Blitz yesterday, Nicole and I talked about how we define the "Mormon" in Mormon Lit Blitz. While many pieces have Mormon characters or imagery, like the first two days of this year's Lit Blitz have, we actually think of the "Mormon" label for our contest as defining audience: we want pieces that speak to us in some way as Mormons, that are richer in the reading with a Mormon context.
"Germination" is an example of a finalist without overt Mormon characters or imagery.
Does it speak to us as Mormons in some unique, richer way? Or is it just a great poem that would mean as much to anybody?
