what’s in a poem?

inspiration
photoart & poem – ©2018 Laura Granby

visuals in verse is poetry
strip-lit ideas along ley lines
– rhymes seasoned to taste

melodious metres that pulse and quicken
a tick-tock lexical diction
worming away with sound

skaters on figures of speech
– or drydock dictionaries  when poems
fail to sail us listeners ashore

Putting some poetry into 44  words for Victoria’s ‘Poem‘ quadrille

  3. Oh Laura, your muse is on overdrive. This is so full of delight. I was going to highlight my favorite lines but you would have the whole poem here in comments. Thank you.

  4. clever and delicious word play … makes for delightful poeming …. which is beginning to sound like a word bombing (like yarn bombing) to my ears …. which is making me smile 🙂
