A WHITE CURTAIN FALLS

Time unwinds where river tears spill
O’er river rock, when angels stand still.

    It's amazing how*tearing up* in so little words you can describe that so dramatically

    Hi Helen...I have been practicing writing each line of every poem like it is the only...and I've been concentrating on writing short poetry forms. I think my writing skills are improving because I write this way. Thanks for the encouragement. CR

    Caryl, John's contest rules ask for entries to have an element of sound....I know u sensed the sound in mine and I appreciate you comments. The sound I hear in yours are ticking clocks..dripping of water over rock, and the powerful sound of silence. (Unless, of course, the angels are flapping their wings :) ) Did I get em right? Gwendolen

    Ramsdale Avatar Caryl Ramsdale Date: 9/3/2011 5:10:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Gwen: That too! However, Euphony also refers to harmoniousness in speech sounds, especially in word choices emphasizing various patterns of consonants or vowels. Sometimes what is left unsaid...left merely to imagine...speaks loudest. Not many will hear all the ear pleasing possibilities this poem explores or suggests unfortunately. Have a peaceful day folled with blessings. CR

    Hey Caryl, I really like this. Read David's comment, do think this has 18, but easy fixes: O'er --> ON river rockS, PASSED river rock. Also, did you try to reverse the where and when with each other? It shifts the image. This is lovely, as is. Hope it places sky-high. Cheers, Cyndi

    Ramsdale Avatar Caryl Ramsdale Date: 9/3/2011 2:17:00 PM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I checked the syllable count here with the PS syllable counter after David commented. The results read 17. If you will pronounce o'er correctly like "oar" the syllable count totals 17. It's the correct english pronunciation so I'm safe. Thanks for the concern and helpful advice. Have a peaceful creative day filled with blessings my friend. CR

    Good moring, Caryl, This scene painted with poetic design is like a shimmery dream...calming and full of healing. The title is breath taking. I must have it for my treasure trove of poems. Off to my favorites it goes. It is not easy to write powerful crystalline. You did it well. Have a great holiday weekend. Love, Gwendolen

    Gwen: Thanks for the kind comment and save. I appreciate reader's encouragement. Your "Opera of Autumn" Crystalline creation will be in the winner's circle I'm certain. I love this combination you wrote..."autumn mist sings on tippy toes"...What a grand finale'. Good luck as John judges my friend! CR
