Fancy Perfume and Twirling Ribbons – Collaboration with lburton

4

July 8, 2017 by petrujviljoen

Poems can ring, rise upon sun and moon
or bring momentum to an errant flame.
Maybe it falls face first, mangled too soon
its sound wailing against the sting of rain.

Dawn will singe your senses, set them all free
perform song and acrobatic dances
cry out in celebration, yours to see

 

rain’s dais the mountain top –

mist flares skyward. A splendid

monotone rainbow glistens briefly,

arcing outward, disappears into the

canopy bridging planet to infinity –

as words of poetic incline

plead of you – to climb.

….

Another collaboration, this time with Lynn Burton in the July Challenge hosted by Jilly Lyman. It’s an anagram – using only the letters in the title.

    I love the ending:

    “as words of poetic incline
    plead of you – to climb”
