Today’s post is actually an assignment for my poetry class and a submission for Thursday Tales. This is my first time submitting any writing at Thursday Tales although I have stopped by and read a lot and have really enjoy the site. My assignment was to look at a picture and write ten lines. The first line – ask a question by the character. Next four lines- introduce a conflict the character has. Next four lines – resolve the conflict. Final line – rephrase the initial conflict in the first line, which is called an envelope effect”.
Can you hear my words, lost in an echo?
Whispering swing, gently hushed
wisps of hair falling, unnoticed
I wait for your arms
to comfort me
My eyes find you, there!
Your smell; cinnamon and blackberries
lifting me high, my fingers
touch your skin, softly
Can you hear my words, lost in your heart?
