Conversation by Pleiades








Totally Optional Prompt: says: Conversations
Write a poem in the form of a conversation among at least two speakers. They can be people real or imagined, animals, plants, inanimate objects, or anything else you can think of. You could use direct or reported speech.

Or you could write something else entirely. Since the prompt is
Totally Optional.

My response (A Pleiades Poem: 7 lines, 6 syllables each starting with the first letter of the title) follows:

Contest


constant conversing lets
confusion steal up to
clash against common sense
chaos waxes, takes charge,
challenge wins when thought stops
courage wanes, widens gap
cream can't float on spoiled milk

Conflict of the mind. We seemed to go a similar way in this prompt - though you put it far more artistically.

Okay, Love the fractal, I can feel the thought chatter in your minds conversation and I adore the way the end line sums it all up...or not!

This is just so outstanding in all ways. I sank into your sea of c's. The last line is a stunning statement of a simple truth.
