  1. I like the alliteration. Sometimes I think if you get the sound and ‘texture’ of a poem right, the meaning will take care of itself. (I’m sort of paraphrasing Edgar Allen Poe, I think). Which is not to say that this poem is meaningless, it’s just that it seems to be more about imagery and music than a ‘message’.

    1. Fekesh – That is exactly what happened! I am not sure I started out that way – but I am learning to let go more and find beauty in the way things are said, how they flow, rather than struggling so much with meaning. I had a sense of what I wanted to convey. The words do each hold the meaning I intended – but not structured. It just flows. 🙂
