THIS IS A REVIEW FROM Brian K Compton
Hello, I came across another item of yours on WDC listings. I was intrigued by this poem about the oft discussed subject of poetry, love.
So love is waiting to happen in all these places? Good listing.
on silver screens
But, "the wait is forever and haphazard..."
I enjoyed this expression: "Flying in myth/With diaper and bow." Image of cupid made me laugh a little. And love does all these things?
wilts and grows
Maybe a more apt and extended list could help there. Then you repeat, "It has no direction," which was redundant. it's depicted as:
"It's weak and it's firm.
It's wise and it's shallow.
It's saved many lives
And sent men to the gallows."
Nice. Then, building a little history:
"Helen knows its started wars.
John professed it would bring peace.
Cleo read it from the stars.
Beauty found it with the beast."
But then we're back here:
"Looking in shadows
And underneath rocks,
I don't have forever
For my life has a clock."
Sounds like impatient waiting for love. I liked the next two lines and the third in final verse for it's sarcasm, but the ending line left me a little confused and let down that this didn't punctuate better.
"If an arrow flies
I'm never struck.
Can a blind archer aim?
Do I always duck?"
Was a pleasure to come across you again,
