June 2022

slipknot
the thought

ready to fade away–
the story lost, mislaid

between image and words—falling,
asking to be caught up, calling—

and if it were–
what then?—now here,

now unconfined, a seed
to open, finally freed—

surprise breaks through
in green and blue

After I saw Muri’s hexaduad the other day I wanted to try one. I took a rough poem I wrote recently, and revised it to fit. It’s a pretty flexible form, despite the rhymes.

We’ve had so much rain and so little very hot weather that it’s lush and green here in NYC to begin June.

    I really like that poem. And such a happy ending in the last two lines. The woven images work well as the net to catch the fading thought and lost story.

    How well you do these, K. I enjoyed the rhythm that the rhyming brought and the color.
    Lovely are too. Thanks.

    I was thinking this morning that I wanted some artwork from you, Kerfe. And wah lah, here it is. Beautiful. And a cool poetic form that you make look effortless, as usual. I love all that green. Happy June.

    well captured! time and time again that is how it is – perhaps too why we cannot let go and keep them in ‘draft’.

    Your hexaduad released it!
