departure

departure
a sedoka, with poetic license

that night I tasted
moonlight in your sultry gaze,
touched words unsaid. (memories

hiding in a box)
tonight, sun jumps off the edge
of earth, disappears like you.

touch words unsaid—memories

Today, over at dVerse,  where we’re beginning our third year of sharing poetry, we’re challenged to choose any topic from Form for All or Meeting the Bar that was presented in the last year. I chose one from each and created a combo. The form is a Sedoka, presented by Sam Peralta and the poetic tool is Synesthesia, which I presented. I did take a bit of liberty with the form, adding a 7th line that is not called for. To revisit the original posts click HERE for Sedoka and HERE for synesthesia. Have fun, celebrate! Come to the pub–share your poem and enjoy your fellow poets. Encourage them with your comments!
