What Are You?






You
Are the word
That lights the flame
That vexes thought
That searches long
Its sea for song
In perfect harmony; its rush
Amalgamating with ink-touch
To spell the thought
That lights the flame
Beneath a word
In oceans stirred
To form
Its per-
Fect
Poem

  4. interesting poem Janet. the beginning, the end were some sort of mirrored image - attractively done, and with just enough tension (difference) to make thoughts wander/wonder (good for a poem to do).
    thanks for participating! neil
