Pulling Colors from the Sky

pulling colors wht s

Belonging to nothing
spare and straight
in stillness
constellated

Spare and straight
like dusk falling
constellated
listening for the stars

Like dusk falling
on a butterfly
listening for the stars
across whispered air

On a butterfly
wandering
across whispered air
beyond desire

Wandering
in stillness
beyond desire
belonging to nothing

A pantoum for Sue Vincent’s photo prompt, above.

    First, I love your title, which sent me dreaming.
    Second, I love the simplicity of this pantoum. It makes me envision some sort of wandering spirits.

    I like how each phrase build on the previous phrase. I love the grid.

    Your pantoum flows slow smoothly, and your collage echos the prompt nicely.

    Beautiful poetic piece, Kerfe. The 3rd and 4th verse are pure delight. ❤

    So like your pattern in the grid… And I like how the second line of each verse is used as the beginning of the next one. Very creative! 💜

    The pantoum works perfectly alongside your artwork, Kerfe… and the repetition of its elements seems to sit ‘right’ with the circle.
