Sprouting

I let the lilies lie in their lilted lullabies,
of corners that cobwebs craved their cries,
When flowers fell in gardens not groomed,
and all creatures crawling craved rays of the moon.

While humans hindered lights that lit night's street,
of no sheltering sidewalks solemnly did they greet,
On broken bottled pathways pondering in their time,
for all life's troubles planted and left behind.

You know perfectly how to play with words! Your work gathers everything I like to read in a poem : alliteration, assonance, rhymes, a wonderful theme about nature...what else?! Keep going like this, and I really means it. You made my day

Realistic image forms clearly from your words. My favorite line happens to be the last, "for all life's troubles planted and left behind" sent goosebumps up my spine and down my arms, wow! Good job, you have a very special talent!

It is difficult enough to make one's poetry rhyme- I certainly can't do it all of the time. (I just did it, see?) But to add multiple illeterations? I hope that people can appreciate such word smithing. The mood is sad, dreary and depressing, yet our poet is able to walk away, and leave "all of life's troubles planted and left behind." I look forward to reading more of her work.

I love your voice. A true poet in my opinion. Just enough depth to make your gears grind and just the right amount of the lustful love of words I believe in my marrow that poetry (non-negotiable) can't bloom without. Would be super-stoked if you could review one of mine some time.
Jessie Ní Leacaí More than 1 year ago
