Shadows of Grace at Apogee Poet. A sliver of a moment taken and held: short, sweet, and beautiful.
A Ballad In Shades Of Red at Shay’s Word Garden. This one is told almost like a riddle; it coils up and bites you at the end. The poem very effectively uses short quick images to create just the needed impression. Fantastic!
Silent at metamorphosing. This is a very enigmatic poem. The pictures that goes with it only adds to the mystery. The writing is as sparse as it is deft. I think there’s a message here, that intentionally turns on itself, revealing the truth. A well done poem.
Nightmare for Toads at Writing in the Bachs. I love this, a poem shaped like a diamond, a complete narrative in nine lines – and if that’s not sufficient, enough images to send a little chill up my spine. This poem is great!
It’s Just an Illusion at Laurie Kolp Poetry. It can’t be an illusion when it feels this real! It seems Laurie started out with a set of words and, as a challenge, wrote a poem around them, but I really love the images conjured up here. Everything fits as a whole, and the ending is just right. Read and enjoy!
