Poet's Notes

At first I wrote this to a contest for Charles Messina  but I read the definition of light verse which Charles suggested for the contest.  I am awful with humor so decided it doesn’t fit the
guidelines but I did have fun writing it. I won’t enter it on those grounds. 



To Prejudice the Dawn -CT

Blackbird, winter moon, small echo of death
Starlight, lord of beauty, time stands still
The quality of mercy, mind and heart
life accelerated, how to slow down time
eyes of Mother Nature. her immortal sadness
equilibrium, controlled fallacy, 
self knowledge in the aftermath
A poet’s impasse, the shape of death
to be a part of landscape, conjuring up a world
the pain of too much beauty,  how to die
earth mother, song of rain, she is nature
sketch of a dream, angel wings, guardians of forever
I am listening for you, the source of being,
when dawn returns, as seasons dance
stars splash, spring light, spirit of dreams
dialogue of Autumn, dialogue of place
every beautiful thing, touching evolution
shaping life,  as utopia sleeps,to transmogrify,
directive for a new day, winter leaf dance

Collaboration of your Titles Poetry Contest

Very interesting, Suzanne! Such beautiful phrases and images pouring out in a delightful stream; until the seeming incongruity at some points made me wonder if you had used a computer algorithm to create the mix (no criticism; the result is stlll impressive) then I saw from your note the explanation of the source(s). A brilliant outcome! Very well done’

Thanks Rick: When I read the description so many of my titles are of the kind I couldn’t make Light Verse with them but it was a great exercise. Hugs, SuZ
