time twirls

It’s 2017 and a Happy New Year to all of you. Bjorn is back with the  Quadrille #23 prompt for dVerse, which I am late responding too ( still very much in Holiday mode).

Here is my effort to write a 44 word poem on the theme ‘curl’

~~~~~~~~~         ~~~~~~~~~         ~~~~~~~~~

 

curl back pages of the poet’s mind

to

unfurl words of times past as

beings

that swirl with the melody and rhythm of echo

which

upon the parchments of yesterday twist and twirl so that

I

may hurl them into this paperless future

write

 

~~~~~~~~~         ~~~~~~~~~         ~~~~~~~~~

  1. I guess that’s what poets do – twirl and swirl words and then hurl them into immortality. I chuckle at the peel back the pages of a poet’s mind – that thought makes my mind reel – the poet’s mind might be a dangerous place (maybe we might not want to peel that back 😉 )
