I gift my words, or: Whisper… ‘possibility’

Poetry Partners #24

A poem by Madamchryzl of ‘Rhymes, Writings, and Confessions to Small Crimes’

My gift of words I submit to you...
Characters assembled depicting a phonetic view...
To you, I gift my words, though they may be few...

A magnetic Sijo by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

you surprise like a barefoot kiss \\ tasting of peach martini
our song a dance of light laughter \\ through rainbow flowers abloom
today's shared positive vibrations \\ whisper... 'possibility'

Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

  1. “My gift of words…” is a warm, personal poem that is relatable to any creative writer. The Sijo is exquisitely beautiful. Together, they brightened my morning. Wonderful, David! ❤

  2. See here. I had to break away to (shame on me!) google sijo. Then back for a third read. With each read, more of these brief love songs came through. Well done. poemeticists, well done!

    1. Espie, thanks!

      BTW, the word ‘sijo’ in my blog post is a link to information about the ‘sijo’ – I usually include links to explain the forms I’m using (especially if I’m not including any explanation within the blog posts themselves).


  3. Oh that is such a beautiful array of words from Madamchryzl
