GOTHIC SONNET For The Three Muses: gothic. Elements from Allison Pennington, Jen Maddocks, Vintage Moth, and Valorie Wibbens. The poem is mine: Gothic Sonnet The moonlit field is haunted by the brush of hunting shadow wings. The field mouse stops -- her heart a frantic rythym in the hush of grassy murmur, field brook rush, the plop of water on the rocks -- as wings dip once then down the sound of owl descending, loud to ears now straining for the sound of pounce! that predatory whoosh! that final shout. Does field-mouse shudder, thick with fear, her bones astutter as... Continue reading

THIS ACHE, THIS LONGING Drawing by Lee Zimmerman (@zim2918 at Twitter) used with permission. The font is dearJoe4. The poem is mine: *** This ache, this longing to hold you, I held you all afternoon, though you are miles away. This morning I rose and turned off the window fans. The house was cool but filled with the scent of fire and pine. We are surrounded by burning forests. The sound does not reach us but the wind brings ash and smoke. We are embraced by its remains, detritus of its fury. evidence of life in flames. *** Continue reading

THE CLOSING (a found/collage poem) For The Three Muses: circles. Template from Jen Maddocks; other elements from Soto Creations, Rebecca McMeen, and Sissy Sparrows. The poem is mine: the closing circles caused by changing parallels, a different balance, in light-skinned women, a range between (her pelvis must reach) an idea of round lawn. walk beneath allowed lilacs, glans of penis, bulb of vestibule (four columnar trees.) intricate planted rooms. a (woman) needs an inventory of existing. the footpath is covered (outer lips, inner lips.) a circle of darker lawn dotted with (arched stone) white water rushing next to the canal...
