When She Uses All The Words



She’s still
dance-drizzling shadow
-word clouds; open sparks
spring on cue, breathe
ghosts into giggles,
spill scars.

She lulls
words to jars
(journey, rose, breeze),
leaves their shimmer
to bubblegrin a green
dawn. Curls her melted
self (whisperthintwist)
into bold balloon.

to sky.

A second quadrille for dVerse today, The One With All The Words.

    She sounds to me like she’s speaking and dancing into little thought bubbles, then she curls herself into one and skips into the sky. I like the way it flows, quite spontaneously

    fabulously descriptive and unique verbs here:
    “dance-drizzling” and my favourite “bubblegrin”
