Streaked with fresh tears shining in the silver light Of the moon reflecting off the windowpane A rendezvous of sounds whisper in the night Dark shadows flit into the overgrown lane Of my mind; echoing the words; taunting me Grappling with the visions to please set me free Crumbled in frustration of inspiration I dance with the shadows in liberation
Inspired by: "Poetry is an echo, asking a shadow to dance." ~ Carl Sandburg Please see the About section for the academic comment on this poem. Sponsor: Russell Sivey Contest Name: Poetry about Poetry 9 January 2013

    I really enjoyed the more emotional tinge to this write Su, I too find it a pleasant form to write in. My fav line is [A rendezvous of sounds whisper] I never thought of sound in this way before [its one of my weaker senses ;)] Congrad's on your admirable win. Light & Love
