Ring-less Poesie


no preset room

with whitewashed glass

for poesie blooms


from Dante’s doom

and checkered past

no preset room


but petals strewn

atop morass

for poesie blooms


amid lampoons

of versing class

no preset room


her arching plume

a looking glass

for poesie blooms


resisting prune

of leaf till last

no preset room

for poesie blooms.

  1. Wow. That’s awesome Karen.

    • beam, beam <<and not the 2×4 kind…;)

      I thunk on this a bit. I am discovering lots of things about villanelles–they are swell and rhyme with that–but besides that. The sentences you construct for lines 1 and 3 of stanza 1 are ever so critical–even the smallest monosyllable, inflection and inference, and the flow is a forward braid–not stand alone tercets, though they must do that, too. A learning exercise each time, I hope to master it one day…

      that end quatrain? well, that's up for grabs…;)

      fun stuff. Like flexing your creative muscles <,said with a hard Cee…just for fun!

    • It is fantastic. A side of you we don’t normally see. < said with a soft cee

  2. How sweetly versed my lovely friend 🙂
    Have a wonderful Friday followed by a
    deliciously orientated weekend 🙂

  3. A lighthearted way to describe freedom in the midst of “morass”. I do believe you have succeeded while juggling the balls still in the air. Kind of fun, isn’t it, even the weary parts have their moments of respite.

  4. Just a little jocosity on my part.

  5. such a talented way with words ma deah~

    • If you were a sauce, you would have many, well-blended components, full of subtleties and complexities. You have such a way with people, Cindy, and i think it comes from a place of enormous empathy? Or a knowing of your fellow man. An innate instinct. This certainly transposes to your photos. Thank you for taking your time to visit, and remark!

      :mrgreen: <<much bigger on my actual mug…:)
