Wednesday, October 13, 2010 Sunset in the Desert One Shot Poetry Week 15


Sometimes poetry rhymes,
Poetry is made of lines,
Some short and some long,
Poetry takes the color from rainbows
Modifies it, and speaks of other things.

Poetry can dash ahead,
Or wait in ambush.
It is not limited to daily life,
But can speak of heart in hand,
In all matter of things.

Like the hills outside of Santa Fe,
In poetry we can see,
How like leopards they are,
Lying about on the desert floor,
Attending to the business of siesta,

Under a bright New Mexico Sun
They speak gurrrr....
The sound is echoed in
Yellows and purples.

Like a special lens,
Poetry helps to to see,
What is hidden
And what is right before us.

I like how you play with the concept of words and of place and make them sing together.

Sometimes poetry rhymes and sometime it doesn't, what really matters is that it comes from the heart.

Lovely poem and pictures.

Words and pictures as always keeping us tuned into your heart and mind and spirit as all of New Mexico becomes an autumnal phantasmagoria. Thanks for posting, my friend. Gay @beachanny

When it doesn't rhyme they just call it prose. (LOL!)

Nice One Shot, Annell!
