Love Is Oblivion
                                               by michael cahill



oblivion
embraces love--
for desperation
 
          remembering …
                   smiling faces
                           warming embraces
 
             and
 
                     frozen moments
 
and dying embers
           extinguishing

         and
               
moments frozen
            and embraces warming
 
                          faces smiling
                                 



 
remembering                  desperation
 






for love 
embraces
oblivion






 
 


Palindrome Poetry contest entry

Recognized




free form-free verse

In free verse, the placement of the words is of the utmost importance. It is the poet attempting to guide the reader down the page from phrase to phrase and word to word. The best free verse when offered in free form has no or little punctuation or linear structure. The words are placed in such a way that if the reader follows them down the page, the meaning will be clear. The poet places the words so that the reader will stop and consider them and pause where the poet wishes.
This, of course, works when the poet has done a good job. That is for the reader to decide.


Pays one point and 2 member cents.
