Where Words and Images Gather...
I love that "a soft-petal shimmy"!
So lovely. A "soft-petal shimmy" and "soil-shod secrecy" are just so...
Excellent. There is such a strong sense of the rhythm and musicality of language here, and the word feel as if they are doing the things they describe. I like the use of the second-person voice too.
Have just read your new piece...it's so beautiful. I love the apparent simplicity of it, yet each line is so powerful....feels so old, ancient (after the shining part)
~ Valerianna and Aria: Thank you! It gives me a grin that a bit of bellydance vocabulary has transfered from the classroom to this poem :~)~ CP: Second person can be really effective, but I tend to only use it in shorter pieces, as I find it hard to maintain at length. The compliment on musicality means a lot coming from a talented musician ~ Thank you!~ Eimear: What a lovely response! Thank you!
filled with more than one seasonlovely~
Beautiful musical words. This poem would make a great song. I especially liked, your roots twist their way around the white bones of winter!That is a perfect description. :-) Lovely to visit your wonderful blog and by the way I am a cat lover too!Best wishes,Jo May.
P.S. I have added your blog to my creative blog list on my site. I hope that is ok! ;-)
~ Tammie Lee; Thank you! When I was done layering the photo, it was easy to see both winter and spring in the resulting picture. I don't often think of them as connected, but of course they are!~ Joanne; Hello and thank you for stopping by and commenting! Just back from visiting your blog - there is such a vast array of beautiful things there! Kudos!
