I ... entered the poem of life, whose purpose is ... simply to witness the beauties of the world, to discover the many forms that love can take. (Barabara Blackman in 'Glass After Glass')

Mutual Love Rhapsody

dream beside you
my soft song
listen
come the hope
charm with another evening
word over time
remember
belong when home here
heart has gentle regard
believe star wish
we want us
tell strong river
as faith bloom full

as faith bloom full
tell strong river
we want us
believe star wish
heart has gentle regard
belong when home here
remember
word over time
charm with another evening
come the hope
listen
my soft song
dream beside you



At dVerse Meeting the Bar, we are invited to write a palindrome or mirror poem. Perhaps I'm not very inventive just now! After the first abortive attempt, my mind went blank — until I resorted once again to the Magnetic Poetry site. Perhaps not a huge challenge, but all I can manage at present. I used the Love kit this time. The title came from the kit, too.

  3. Nice.I appreciate the feel of the piece. It has a bit of a stop and start flow to it that I think could be overcome by breaking up the larger stanzas a bit, imho

  8. You conquered the form admirably, & had some fun too; dreamy & romantic, indeed. I have never heard of or tried "magnetic poetry"; guess my personality is magnetic enough already (smile); not. Will perhaps look into it some day.

  11. I am so glad you reposted a poem. I've never done the magnetic poetry before and it sounds so very interesting! This is such a wonderful romantic poem and while it may have come from a "kit", there is so much of you in it that just makes it unique and enjoyable. Excellent form!
