Tuesday 26, 2011 NaPoWriMo Day #26

NaPoWriMo Day #26

Paper- Cut
Sharp is the edge
The paper-cut
On my finger
Stanch the blood
With tissue

The blood steals
Down upon the page
Words tattooed
Upon the heart
Replenish words spent
In rhyme and rhythm
Whispered in love

The needle sharp
Steals through the pages
Pulling the thread through
Pinwheels bound together
A piquant form
Spinning eternally
Through all emotions
Nothing diminished
Seeking the unusual
Is not cheap

Careful planning
Personal rhythm
Not a race
Rather a slow and steady creep
To dodge the sharp edges
That cuts the finger
That soaks the page
That hold the words
The pinwheel
On which my heart is written

have not heard that word in a long time "pinwheel" and the vision of it as heart spinning is one I will think about and review today...bkm

This is a beautiful piece of writing Annell. Love the images of hands busy creating, showing the marks of the work after completion. And the deep satisfaction to be had even with the blood letting,

Your poem has me thinking how much of our heart and soul goes into the making of a book--real and metaphorical. I love this.
