Pitter patter, or: Lullaby

Poetry Partners #28

‘A Song of Raindrops’ by Gillena Cox of ‘Verses’

Sing a song of raindrops, falling on flower petals, some refusing to leave, cause happiness is not a roll off task.
If you got hold of it and can’t drink it, still, hold it, and keep it like precious pearls, for as long as.

A biolet by ben Alexander of โ€˜The Skepticโ€™s Kaddishโ€™

Sing a song of raindrops
Falling on flower petals
Ere muddy puddles settle
Overrun poet's pen stops
Falling on flower petals
Sing a song of raindrops

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. I really like both pieces here. Your biolet is mesmerizing. There’s just something about the flipped repeating lines that makes it sort of like a chant or mantra (“chantra?” ๐Ÿ˜€ ). Beautiful images abound in both poems, too. ๐Ÿ™‚
