posted for Poets United
we have to be careful wearing our heart...people dont always care for it when they can see it...smiles. lovely imagery, esp toward the end...i am a form idiot, so what form?do love the title on this audrey
Thanks Brian--I am also a form idiot--so II don't know if it has a name--the rhyme of the a line keeps returning one line later each time--soabcd eafghiaj etc
ah, interesting...a nice open loop...
I used to wear my heart on my sleeve...until I made the mistake of wiping my nose on it once.
You made me laugh!!
wearing the heart like a badge in a changing season... oy...we have to be careful of the robbers along the way... i like the images you use audrey
Thank you Claudia!
Poetically and colorfully wonderful.
Rasma---thank you so much!
This is a wonderful synthesis of poem and art.
Thank you Liz--I am glad you enjoyed the two
I'm getting ready for a day road trip, so I have to run, but I wanted to get my touch of beauty this morning before leaving. You provided it and I thank you.
Hey Bill--Thank you and enjoy your day!!
I love the form you used, Audrey. Sometimes it IS nice to stretch oneself and try something different. In this poem I am especially struck by the wonderful use of colors, which reminds me how MUCH colors add to poetry. The second stanza is sad -- someone leaving who will be very much missed!
Timo's comment made me cackle.......love the poem and admire the form, Audrey. Intriguing write.
Thank you Sherry--Timo made me cackle as well!!
The heart is essential to life in more ways than one. Great write.
Love the style and artistic flow of this, beautiful!
It takes great courage to wear one's heart in the sleeve ~ Intriguing form dear ~ Happy weekend from BC, smiles ~
heartfelt. loved the images, and I didn't even noticed it was written in a form :) I'm such a free verse poet. I admire those who can write in form.
fits with Bastille Day - todaylove the flow Audrey and the feel of pride even in her sanguinous pain
thank you for sharing - beautiful poem!
ooh I felt the urge to tell her to be careful! Love your use of color Audrey.
a poem of exquisite delicateness and vivid colours.
You picked great image to go with your poetry, always!
forms can be very interesting to write. though i favour free verse, i like to write some form poetry now and then. i liked the images in your poem, and your use of colours in it, :)
Your piece is written with much passion connected to the idea of red on white.
Audrey, exquisite! Well done.
"She wears her heart like a badge" and other images leave me breathless... Lovely poem, Audrey!
"Shivering in jacketsOf gold and brown,Buttons ajar in the light.She wears her heart"Love the imagery Audrey!
Wearing our hearts like a badge takes true courage so the red is so appropriate.
I think it's enviable to wear out hearts where others might not only see them, but touch them. This was beautiful.
There is something especially wonderful about the idea of fall with buttons - buttons ajar -- this worked very well with the heart as a badge. Thanks much. Karin--(Manicddaily.wordpress.) k.
