A Decastitch poem… 10 lines, free verse.


marsh mud, willows,
mute search for
a landing,
blue heron to fish,
tumblers of
mist on
the horizon.

    Lance, I love free verse, yes that’s just what it is free verse being spoken from the senses of the human mind, visual, show don’t tell, images, building imaginations for the reader’s minds. Love this Lance! Barb:)

  7. I like the way you say so much in so few lines. The image immediately comes to mind—peaceful, yet so much activity as well. 🙂

    Love this free verse for its beautiful imagery, flow and concision. With just a few words you have captured those fleeting moments in nature.

  13. Reblogged this on sovrasenso bisbigliato and commented:

    acque palustri fronde ,
    verzure ,
    mute anelano
    a un atterraggio,
    le pesca l’airone azzurro,
    opalescente vetro
    sopra l’orizzonte.
