Dove (9-Nov-2011)

My sweetie has been gone all week building houses in Haiti. I decided to use 3WW to write a poem. I chose the pleiades form to add to that collection.


drank of the wellspring of
delicious love I have
decided to hitch my
desires to one whom
dances on pin heads with
deafening life she will
dig to muster my soul

I love your use of line breaks and prosaic diction in this poem, it makes the sentiment feel far more honest.

Thanks for the positive comment. In case you weren't aware, this poem is in a strict form called a Pleiades. It requires 7 lines of 6 syllables each starting with the same letter. So I can't take full credit for the line break idea :-)
