January Slide Show #18
The second El Jefe showed me this work of art he made, I immediately wanted to write something for my Chunk #2. A picture really does say a thousand words. I think poetry can do the same. The challenge is writing a piece that says a thousand words, without actually writing one thousand words, right? I haven’t been brave enough to share some of my work on this here blog. So, I’m going to break those shackles of self-doubt and just share already. I think, of those proverbial one thousand words, dare I say I might have caught two hundred and fifty of them in my poem? In any case…….love this girl!
Breathe your soul into those heavenly torches,
for they blink and wink at you.
The Sparkly Butterfly,
The center of their shimmering swarm.
You giggle a waltz in
a-rhythmic turns and steps.
Gild your days,
with ornate crowns and
Satiny play dresses too big ’round the shoulders.
Adjusting your sleeve,
jeans peering out the bottom,
you call to me
with the cadence of a twinkle.
This slide show is in honor of Kodachrome’s 75 years on this earth. Click here.
Ahem, if you have some serious feedback on my writing, please feel free to share. I can take it. I can.
