Monday, June 20
but no ink-stained fingers for them
only a tapping key tarantella
danced on a keyboard.
"Free board and lodging
for hard working words.
Must earn their keep."
So reads a notice in the window
of a mind in search of free verse.
See One Stop Poetry and Fireblossom for an explanation of this departure from my usual course!
And while it's still Monday, Magpie Tales nudged me to play with this other kind of framed image, and I decided to put them together, although a shadorma is not exactly free verse...
this gem of beauty
carved in light.
Across untold centuries
its gaze will haunt us.
