From the inside-out, the inner poet escapes, needing to express....
the moon has been so bright the last couple nights...they seem to have substance...so i could see sailing on them...smiles. magical ginny...
"sequins set on velveteen". I love riding a boat at night - I find the city lights so comforting. Beautiful.
Such a lovely triolet ~ I love the imagery of moon-filled night ~
nicely done, good use of the triolet
I had never heard of a triolet before this....thank you for the beautiful introduction :-)
Ahh..the beauty of being simple mariners on Summer nights..and certainly reflective of the gulf view of my home town state...and yes..again..a poem that reflects my wife's Chinese fortune enclosed in cookie en trails..of crumbs...scattered2..about...when eating..tonight...the mariner's skills are reflective of waves..en count er ed..but never still of ocean flow..does a Mariner make in greater captain..of ship or mate!:)in ocean still..for simple flow...
Well, yes we do, dreams, moonbeams, they are the far better than some of the substantial nightmares that haunt our waking hours.
Lovely - the full moon sky enchants us all - well viewed here with all its glitter. Well done.
Sometimes in reading poetry the images capture my attention, other times the form...and both are striking. But what really hit me in this was some of the words you chose, Ginny. Words that just "taste" good in my mouth. Now I want to write something with sequins! And thanks for your help tonight.
Wonderful combination of words and photo. Oh to be able to sail on a pale moonbeam...what a journey! Smiles.
A triolet to cherish, images deeply etched in our emotions. I believe I have drown before in past lives, so deep water frightens me, & at night it is worse; but by virtue of your poetics, I can enjoy it; thanks.
We would all like to be that kind of mariners. Beautiful words!
Sweetly tender Ginny - brightened up my Sunday... With Best Wishes Scott www.scotthastie.com
