So, or: Just sew-sew

Poetry Partners #158

‘Story Knitting’, a poem by L. M. Montes of ‘Write Time and Again’

Sew by weaving words,
knitting character, plot, and structure within
the fabric of emotions, habits, conflict,
bringing sparkle, glitz, pizzazz,
warming readers,
striking souls,
with words aplenty
of stories told.

A shadorma by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’

golden thread
lost in thick tangles;
I pull at
knotted words,
coarse snarls resist corrections,
thus bound to regret

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)
