*VVV a shape form after style created by A R Ammons  columnar verse


CRATER a vvv
       fragile     and
      volatile     lie
suppressed     emotions
       denied     'neath
            the     volcano 
              of     frustration 

CANYAN  a vvv
           high     wide
            and     handsome
            the      chasm
             of       emptiness
           that      fills
    viduaged      hearts
     soft      spoken
  voiced      musings
    freed      verse
  lingers      in
      the       ear
dwelling      for
          a      moment

      beauty     youth
yesterdays     dreams
        todays     remains
      dressed     in
       widows     weeds

*NOTE a VVV (visual vertical verse) is a proverbial style shape poem inspired by A R Ammons 'Cleavage and Chasm ' poetry to which I have now applied this new convenient label and an integral title.
