poem crack{warning}


..

this poem may be habit-forming,
causing the need to read others,
wrestle pen. it’s a gateway
scribble, really, that first taste
of rhythm-rhyming zen you
didn’t know you needed. to
breathe. a smudge of sky. a wisp
of why. the resounding crack of dawn.

 

..It’s Quadrille Monday over at dVerse. I’m hosting. Come play.

  1. I do love a wisp of why… isn’t that the essence of every poem.? dawn is its beating heart

    I totally agree with Bjorn. The why of poems…makes their hearts beat and their ears listen for more.

  3. ‘That first taste of rhythm -rhyming zen’- Love it!

    You had me at /it’s a gateway scribble/–for poetry can be a drug leading to the reading of literature and world history. Of course, /the wisp of why/ is another hook.

  6. Rob Kistner says:

    Like Glenn, “gateway scribble” grabbed me and pulled me right on through. Rhythm rhyming zen indeed! Great piece De!

  7. Hah! Brilliant and perfect.

    Nice sound in this phrase: “a smudge of sky. a wisp
    of why”
