Until They Shine

Wading through fragmented thoughts Searching for one last poetic line To slip around a shattered heart Then shaped into a perfect bow Pulsating softly like guitar strings As they begin to play real slow Replacing old queasy emotions With melodic breezes that flow Through the canyons of mind Once found in a bottle of whiskey That has now been left behind Gliding in Texas two-step rhymes To the Silver Bullet Band we bid goodnight Our last dance becomes A mellow tune that only Seger hums We dance between the verses of smoothed out lines That seem to roll endlessly through gifted minds To be left off the page, until they shine

    They can be quite elusive can't they, those poetic lines :) Karen this was beautiful. The way you expressed it was very touching.

    Back to read this... I forgot to mention to you that I put this in my favorites. I think my favorite line is "dancing between verses of smoothed out lines" ... well those last three lines ... Your words definitely shine.

    Very cool poem! I love the metaphors throughout and it flows so well, like a softly strummed guitar, I'd say. Beautiful work my friend. Always, Laura

    Wow, this is so impressive Karen. It kept getting better and better and I didn't want it to end. What I call "silver words"....they shimmer and shine as you ended your poem with that last line. Brilliant! This one is going straight into my fav's.

    Connie, somehow my comment to Becca jumped into your screen ... thank you so much for the lovely comments. I appreciate your inspiring words !

    Becca, thank you so much for the glowing words. You inspire me very much and I really like it that you just let your honesty shine... we both seem to worry about our imperfections a little :)
  1. Date: 9/7/2013 5:13:00 PM

    Oh my gosh, this is so true, so perfectly stated... I love this!!! Seger! Wow, I love this... it's true that most times I'm a perfectionist.. but some days I just have to get it out there, kind of like today... :) thank you so much for your encouragement, and I'm glad it brought me here today. hugs

    Justin, I am pleased you see you splash those romantic comments on my page :)

    Good morning, Karen. Did you mean for this to be categorized as "free-verse"? I thought you had some lovely rhymes throughout. I also enjoyed the modern feel of it; as you know, I am trapped in centuries past, so I liked the present-day mood. Very well executed poem, my talented friend :)

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 9/5/2013 9:50:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    I felt a little more into Free Verse mood than Rhyme when I wrote it ; but thank you for noticing the rhyme patterns and thank you for your grand comments :)

    I also agree with Yanny: the last line is perfect and beautifully anchors the piece :)

    You have some great lines here, Karen. A musical poem and it sounds great!

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 9/5/2013 9:50:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Thank you Caleb... I appreciate your musical relationship with the poem.
  1. Date: 9/5/2013 9:02:00 AM

    I really enjoyed this piece, there was plenty of new imagery for me. You slip from Free Verse into Rhyme at the middle to the end so labeling this Verse would be best. You certainly have a way with words! As to what 'inspired' [The Sowing] I've simply known and know too many woman who have been victimized by men.

    Anglesey Avatar Karen Anglesey Date: 9/5/2013 9:57:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    WOW ... Debbie thank you for the enlightening comments. The pattern in much of my writing is to slip from Free Verse into Rhyme and I had not thought about why until your comment... Thank you so much :) The poem loosely is based on a song by Bob Seger and was listening to it when I wrote this... I sort of see it as an attempt to bring peace to a chaotic and anxious mind... Thank you so much !

    Richard, I am so delighted by your thoughtful comments. I might even think about a shot of whiskey to loosen me up for a Texas two-step ...ha

    Last line is really a hit line Karen, it closed the entire verses beautifuly and perfect :) enjoyable read that i have today :) hug, yanny
