intriguing, and I'm off to google -tempo rubato !

Roy Schulze said...

I like the idea of our doubts taking tangible form and shadowing us, even walking when then could fly.

Kristen Haskell said...

I don't know if I have the words to express how much I like this. Why does faith lapse for some and not so much for others?

Friko said...

An amazing take on the prompt.

Brian Miller said...

what a neat form...and the shadow rejoining...i hope the doubts only breed questions and searches for answers....

I really like the title, and how you constructed each line a little longer than its predecessor.

Tumblewords, this is brilliant. Oh, I love this.

Ann Grenier said...

Love your Raven reference ... to return to his perch above Poe's chamber door. Explains the strange presence of the bird standing tamely by Lenore?

Selma said...

This is brilliant. Fits perfectly with the image. The lapse of faith is such a powerful concept. You really are a very skilled writer!

The form fits this piece; well said in just a few words.

Dave King said...

Clever, in the very best sense of the word. The form is appropriate and helpful to the thought.

Dear Tumblewords: A lovely cadence happening in this new mode (for me) Fibonacci (eh?)...excellent mode of transmission to soul!
