ghost me a whisper-dawn,
scar-curled meltmoon setting
in her shimmercloud sway.
shadow me a sonnet-grin,
an open jar of sparks,
this rose has thorns.
(cue tattered leaves,
skip the journey,
…..seize the end.
The One With All the Words, for Quadrille #26.
Amazing! You have some wonderful combination words in that first stanza in oarticular.
I’d rather go through the journey. That’s what life is about. 🙂
Fabulous opening lines and wonderful wordplay throughout, De! (And I love the aside in brackets!)
Stunning wordplay…you make it look so easy….the challenge now for me is not to use other poems phrases or repeat my own, from the series.
I agree, this is absolutely splendid, De ❤️
Amazing words, especially in that first stanza!
