Turning – An Artist’s Challenge

Completing Petru’s Challenge poem for December Casting Bricks (collaborative poetry) proved to be an immense delight! A deep fog set in this morning and this little dance ensued.  Her words are in bold (half a quadrille) and my 22 follow. The title is in honor of the very fine artist who presented the challenge.  Please stop by Petru’s beautiful site and browse around.  Anyone who would care to join us at Casting Bricks to Attract Jade is heartily welcome!

 

Step! Two, three and again

step two! Now – turn around

and

voice receding –

centrifugal distant tracking

rhythm raises

drum      beat

light deepening

 

Skip! A beat syncopate

the rhythm — cabriole

one-eighty —

centripetally returning

to

the pound, pound, pounding

in your breast –

clasp            the dark

Tournant

  1. Had to look up cabriole and tournant! The light deepening into the dark, distant interior. Wonderful Jilly! Thanks. A cat’s walk is very much like a dance sometimes in how light-footed they can be, not missing a step (beat).
