Read Write Poem #97

In keeping with the RWP #97 Prompt, this is an older cut up


pale as sandpiper prints
in a wrinkle of infinity
she flies at that easy hour
catches the potbellied moon
rides past a crescent of sand
seaweed laced
with driftwood beads
a blink of stars, a tiny smile
she slides out through the sky
on wings of sparrow sighs

The fractal image was created in Apophysis, marked up in Adobe Photoshop Elements on Bamboo Fun Tablet.

Je vous salue, Tumblewords!

So tight, so supple, so firm... Every single word is exquisite, but if I had to pick a single image that stands out above the rest, it would be:

pale as sandpiper prints
in a wrinkle of infinity

Truly beautiful!

Nifty and very delicate, starting with the title. The images may be distinct but they don't clash, but rather add together different facets.

I like "she flies at that easy hour", which has a lovely swing.

Delicate and beautiful like a sparrow sigh.

Beautiful. No question at all. The sense of wings into flight lifts with every phrase expressed, light and delicate! And "sparrow sighs" comes to the end just perfectly.

"A blink of stars" is lovely. Well done.

This is absolutely exquisite Sue. I'm going back for a re-read. The artwork, perfect!

I like the alliteration -- even as a cut-up the repeated "s" sounds helps tie it all together. My favorite lines were "seaweed laced // with driftwood beads" :-)

ps Thanks for visiting my blog!

from Therese L. Broderick-- I agree with all praise above. The vowel assonance is very lovely. I love how the entire poem is without punctuation except for after the word "blink" -- as if that comma is an unexpected blink. Quite entrancing!
