Wicking - A Pleiades Poem


Poefusion prompts poets with forms and experimentals. This form is called Pleiades. Visit Poefusion for descriptions, prompts and postings.


Wicking

wicks of low white candles
whisper into the dark
waltz minute by minute
with washboard harmonics
whistled up by the wind,
wise beyond spoken words
willowy shadows bend

Seems like everyone is doing these. This poem is so clever, fun and creative.

I can see two people alone in the candlelight. I see a lot more than that but I have a vivid imagination. LOL!

Found this poem through Poefusion. Great site, isn't it?

Your picture and the poem evoke a mood of a balmy evening with a light show.
