-bic pen, a(r)che-typed
in longing, serif soul smithed
in mist and storm.
clouds are commas. this world:
a swirled parens awaiting closure,
exposure to a lone ellipsis moon.
we would hold
nobody told us we could be
It’s Quadrille Monday over at dVerse, and I’m hosting! Come play!
Nice one. Happy Monday
Thank you so much, Gillena.
Very artful and clever; rich in texture and message, wordsmithed marvelously, and more. I liked ” I am bic–serif soul-smithed in mist and storm.”
Thank you, Glenn.
So clever and thoughtful, De. Like how you stuck with type(written) with a message between the lines.
Thanks so much, Lisa. 🙂
You’re very welcome, De.
Oh, I love “ache-typed.”
Gorgeous ending. Amazing poem. I have missed you!
Knew you’d find that one. Miss you, too.

It does indeed. Thanks, Truedessa.

I love the use of clever wordplay in this poem
Thank you! 🙂
Beautiful balance between the metaphorical references and meaningful message. Loved this, especially the finale …”nobody told us we could be bold”. Oh yes, how true.
Thanks so much, Mish.
What a great play on words (serif soul smithed, clouds are commas) clever and bold!! Thanks for getting me up and at ’em!
My pleasure, Yvonne. Thanks so much for your generous comment.
I like this, De, calling the “types” of “types” with a message within.
Thank you so very much for hosting, I enjoy meeting challenges. But then, I’m sort of an answer guy.
Thank you, Jim.
So clever and beautifully written (typed?). An absolutely perfect ending, too!

Love how clever you were with the challenge … reminiscent of my favorite ee cummings.
