Connections: January 30-31

2 Comments

SANYO DIGITAL CAMERANot yet, not yet

slender spires’

mute

rebuke

against the choir’s

restive swell.

When? the plaintive chorale

Wait the silent knell.

Stark and graceful allonge

above impatient fret

speaks in swinging peaceful sway

not yet

not yet

not yet.

  1. Again, I love the “shape” of this poem, as well as it’s music. I can see the bell with its “not yet” clapper. Brilliant!

    • Thank you! I would like to say that I was so clever, but I wasn’t. The shape was accidental — unless, of course, the words made me do it. Sometimes the words do take charge.

      Your eye often catches much that mine misses, and I’m grateful for that. Thanks!
