Love Is Oblivion

Love Is Oblivion
                                               by michael cahill

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

e  t  e  r  n  a  l

extinguishing embers

  d  y   i    n    g

moments frozen
            and embraces warming
                          faces smiling

remembering                  desperation

for love 


Palindrome Poetry contest entry


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.
