Begin With A Word By Skye
Imagination is the catalyst;
a leap into the untold story
of unknown departures
and riveting conclusions,
why it occurred,
when it began,
how it will end,
where it may travel,
who will share the journey.
Words paint with brilliant hues.
The same noun can be seen
in the rosy dawn, shouting hello
or at dusk, whispering adieu.
A verse slogs along a precipice,
carefully placing one vowel
before slowly inserting another.
A line dances across the stage;
leaps, flies, floats, flutters
collapsing in a puddle of drama.
One group of letters bellow
while others zip or stutter,
leaking descriptions onto the page.
Gather the acoutrements of poetry -
simile, rhyme, meter, metaphor,
varied and unique consonants,
and let the mixing begin.
Let the story dribble and gush,
flow or falter; where every word
juggles for supremacy.

Jean Lutz: As I read of your leaving, I thought of the times you have encouraged me. And just as it is when you lose a friend or relative you haven't spent time with lately, you think "I wish I had spent more time with her." RIP, fellow writer.
