It bides,

waiting out of sight.

It hides in

quivering leaf

tearful cheek

passionate heart.

It burrows

into dark places’


with glorious abandon,

lingers, longing for you to see.




Today’s prompt is to address a poem or component of a poem.  I think the goal is to use apostrophe, but that’s not what I ended up with.  Will metaphor/personification do?

  1. i thought the poem was about beauty, or truth… and at its best, that is what poetry achieves. good choice of images & language. good work!

    We strive for something we all know, but don’t have a word for.

    My thoughts are that your poetry evokes exploration, a tantalising peek into our true emotion. Thank you

    Yes. That’ll do friend. Quite nicely.

  7. A poem about poetry! Far better it is, than a coffee table book about coffee tables. (Snide “Seinfeld” reference) :p
