Writing in short form.
Hidden details embedded in each stanza.
The flow of words from
and the imagery you can convey
from a simple dainty word placed upon
a paper doily in your grandmothers kitchen.
Personification, simile, alliteration.
all used in sequence to push along a story
like a freight train flying forward from station to station.
Each part like the pieces in an unfinished puzzle
until you read it in just the right way.
Walking alone, cold and dark
not warm and bright.
Backwards is different than it was the first time.
Each form from old verses
about trees, plants and flowers
made in ancient Japan.
To new ones that rhyme
each stanza and line
throughout, the whole time
Bring me to wishing i could write so much more.
The power behind words.
They're given new meaning
An impactful way of speech designed
Thats whats special to me.
