two hearts

somehow you unravelled her from all
she held with force of habit. enthralled
she awaits silently in anticipation
of your next move. are her expectations
beyond your control,
to belong to her mind, heart and soul?

Go taste
The American Sandwich

if only my heart a octahedron

you could have hidden in the corners


cornered in octahedron's recesses

it would be a great play ground

And go take NaiSaiKu Challenge?

Her heart and soul speaks to his mind, in his heart and soul he is the king. She is his Queen, they reign together, but does she see him as a pawn? In the meantime, he explores the octahedron, as it orbits his world.

beautiful--I especially like the first one.

I can never make sense of any of the challenges that you participate in, but I'm always aware of one thing: you are an exceptional writer

You're getting deeper and asking more questions. This is good.

Julia Phillips Smith said...

Your NaiSaiKu is shivery-good.

I think I like the first one best, but maybe if I understood the form better... ahh, add that to my list, huh? To finally learn the various forms of poetry and play with them, explore them, inhabit them...

Linda Jacobs said...

Two successful attempts at these forms! You are getting better and better at them!

'Anticipation' definitely boarded the train this week. Thanks for your take on it, reminded me of a bygone era in my life.

Good ones!

I tried an American sandwich a while ago.

Gotta get back and try one again. Thanks for the reminder!
