In the July Challenge, Lynn (Colorful Pen) put out a double challenge combining two forms. It proved to be the best work-out I’ve had in ages! Here is my version of her wonderful beginning. (Yes, I cheated a bit on the anagramatic part; there’s a K, a V, and couple of H’s. Sigh.) Thanks for the opportunity to collaborate with you, Lynn!
Poems can ring, rise upon sun and moon
or bring momentum to an errant flame.
Maybe it falls face first, mangled too soon
its sound wailing against the sting of rain.
Dawn will singe your senses, set them all free
perform song and acrobatic dances
cry out in celebration, yours to see
wings grand will sprout if you’ll cast your glances
To the dusk, flapping gallant gilt banners,
twirling ribbons of cantos all abloom.
Pursuing monsters bearing your answers,
your poems will be as a fancy perfume
Restorative balm let poems declare
Rise from burnt cinders and yield to the air
