what’s in a poem?

inspiration
photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

visuals in verse is poetry
strip-lit ideas along ley lines
– rhymes seasoned to taste

melodious metres that pulse and quicken
a tick-tock lexical diction
worming away with sound

skaters on figures of speech
– or drydock dictionaries  when poems
fail to sail us listeners ashore

Putting some poetry into 44  words for Victoria’s ‘Poem‘ quadrille

    clever and delicious word play … makes for delightful poeming …. which is beginning to sound like a word bombing (like yarn bombing) to my ears …. which is making me smile 🙂
