Morning day Soft lightEarth, water, sky
Pirate shipSoft sailIn the corner of his eye
If you blink You might miss itBack trackWalk on by
Perfect loverSoft soulTurning overTo die
death joy knapman life loss love morning pirate poem poetry robert
love that soft staccato rhythm
I can hear the staccato drumming of a prisnor on his way to gallows from an old movie in this poem.Thank Viola for that image.Makes it all the memorable as a sad farewell song
I am in love with this Robert, love the soft flow you have created:)
Thanks to you Viola, Danny and Kim. This came from one of those after midnight moments when feelings are more real. You can sometimes get closer to nearly touch them. Cheers.
This flows so beautifully Robert…something about the witching hour for creating;)
I agree with what you say in your reply, and I do love the poem so much.
Here is a link to somebody I appreciate a lot, writing poems too andillustrating his photos with his poems.
Amazing Robert, can’t believe how creative you are. This is my favourite part:“If you blink You might miss itBack trackWalk on by”
Am loving this – very nice indeed! Love the rhythm and the vivid imagery. Thanks!
Fantastic! Thanks everyone for your genuine comments. Thinking of giving up my day job. Well actually I might if I had one… Must be all that grey matter being thumbed through at uni :P
Loved it Robert, what a cool poem.
