Again, and again, or: How, how, how?

Poetry Partners #107

A poem by Tarlie Francis of ‘Bless Me this Morning’

Mingle with the drizzled rain,
Washing away the pain,
Again, and again;

As memories of you,
Fade away with my youth,
To a remote corner
Of my essential being.

An Emmett by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

Mingle with the drizzled rain
With wrinkled cheeks; worn, furrowed brow
The Past washes away the Now
Drizzled decades, flaked with pain
Rain pitter-patters, "How; how; how?"

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. The first resonates in my imagination. Then you take the situation and wow. I’m not sure but I think you must have an affinity for the “limerick-not-a-limerick” forms! Loved them both!!
