moon following poems

..

etch it on the sun
etch it on the moon
moon over it
moon phase phrase
phrase it loose
phrase it sharp
sharp as a sword
sharp as a tack
tack it to a tree
tack-led to the sea
sea of worries
sea of stories
stories shared
stories squared
squared shoulders
squared corners
corners swept
corners stretched
stretched to the limits
stretched to the sky
sky blue
sky true
true north
true heart
heart filled
heart spilled
spilled in full
spilled in ink
ink the stars
ink your scars
scars are stories
scars are songs
songs of myself
songs of longing
longing for the right words
longing for hieroglyphic keys
keys to clack
keys to unlock
unlock the indigo door
unlock the exit in the floor
floored by syntax
floored by flow
flow-ered with loves me loves me not
flowered with hope
hope to die
hope to poem
poems in paisley
poems in purple
purple
paisley

    ahh you made it look easy! The words go and flow together really well! ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Susan says:

    Yes, following–but never catching–and therefore such an emotion in itself. Your angles on words and verbs follow beautifully.

  3. Kir Piccini says:

    This poem is the reason I fell in love with your writing in the beginning. The journey, the looping jaunt you take me on.

    Love.

  4. Shawna says:

    I love the idea that the moon goes where the poems are.

    “corners swept
    corners stretched
    stretched to the limits
    stretched to the sky”

    Here, I was totally expecting “wept” rather than “stretched.”

    So it would have been “corners swept, corners wept, wept to the limits, wept to the sky.” And oh my, does this speak to me.

    This is my favorite:
    “unlock the indigo door
    unlock the exit in the floor
    floored by syntax
    floored by flow”

    And then the “purr-play, pay slay/sleigh” at the end. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. This is really intense – I love it! It does not look easy – but yours looks like a puzzle that just fell into place – I esp. like the ending – purple paisley!
