Dawn and Dusk (Symbi)

Infinite breaths ….. each

frothed star tints their beach

tide constrained by gravity

souls arc in passion

dare not to ration

Dawn and Dusk await ….. to be

    intake of breath, for words can be so beautiful when aligned …like stars in a night sky… xx

    Uh…WOW! I love what you did with this form. The line “froth stars tint…” is simply exquisite. Your turn of words is so beautiful. I’m really glad you tried the form.

    • Thanks! Very, very challenging, as I was playing with singular/plural, tense and singular/plural and I wanted ‘each’ poem to be able to stand alone, but also be part of the whole story….your rules are challenging … and rewarding! Another … soon!

    • I forgot to mention – this image came to me from actual frothed stars! Walking on the beaches of Tofino at midnight,with the sky SO clear, and the tide coming in at your ankles and knees….the stars and moon seem to be reflected in the frothy tide holding you to the beach! Spectacular! And then .. meteorites exploding in the sky above… illuminating the entire sky above! Really happened to me!

  3. Hi Dragon — I was inspired to try the form because of your post – it’s trickier than it looks, that’s for sure – but very satisfying once it all clicks together. My symbi will be posted on the 13th at 9:30 EST; I mentioned you in the post as having introduced me to the form. Just wanted to give you a heads-up. 🙂

    GREAT POEM, by the way. You make it look effortless. 🙂

    Love the images the poem invokes in mind and heart.

  6. […] to Memoirs of a Dragon for introducing me to the form(s).  I hope I’ve understood it […]

    Ahhh the primordial ebb and flow of life. To be funny, I tweaked this to be a little sexier, as you will see in your email 🙂 Cant wait for the next one! Greg embraces….the rhyme!

    • You should post yours…if you haven’t already! Just catching up now…..dragon tooth ache and all! Rhymes are scary…so are sonnets!!!!

        Poor Toothless…hope you are better….Which poem? Yours that I made erotic on email, or the one I wrote on Kira’s comments? 😉 🙂

        Actually, the one I wrote is somewhere in the queue–I have poems posted out through…..October! 🙂 I just write and pre-schedule them. If I ever die no one will know as they will keep counting off! The hardest part is that while the poem may have been meaningful when I wrote it, by the time it comes out I am like, where did THAT come from? Bad part of not posting in ‘real time’.
        I would love to read a sonnet from you!

        • About… the same. Yet another appt. with dentist on Wednesday morning to figure out how to extract my weird tooth. Might need a dental surgeon, but we will see. It is a long tooth. With an infection. Touching the sinus cavity and is infected, thus the reason for most of my flu(s) and headaches this past 6 months. Will be trying some of your scheduling tricks tonight, over the next day or so! And sonnets …. scare the sinus out of me! Basic fear that was instilled in me in Grade 12 Shakespeare!
