PHOTOGRAPH FRAME

I miss you darling. Our wedding photo stares at me from its silver frame. I lovingly stroke your face, wishing it were for real. Terminal cancer tore you from my arms, but you live in my heart till the day I die. Contest Form F Sponsored by Broken Wings *real counted as 1 syllable as per soup counter – how many syllables shows 2 01~26~17

Cancer - what a scourge! I had it a number of years ago but thanks to a fine surgeon I am now O.K. Your work is quite moving. Good luck in the contest! Peace & Love Matthew Anish

Sad one, Jan. I think this form is making poets come up with some great writes! Of course "real" is one syllable. Those syllable counters are NUTSOS

Sadness in inked emotions drips from your pen my friend. This one was heart aching and deeply lonely feeling to me. You have used this poetic form perfectly. Much luck Jan.

Very emotive Jan. The Fibonacci form seems to add to the weight of expression. Good luck in the contest // Barry.
