Quite lovely Delaney. I'm happy you took up the challenge and it turned out wonderful (both visually and poetically). Perhaps it's just me, but the intensity of the poem almost feels to fluctuate, getting more dramatic, then taking back a step, as you read through it. Wisdom through subtly --- achieve a higher place a valid place for grace. Tops it off nicely :) I just wrote a shape poem as well too. Perhaps the Shapes are catching!
