I thought I’d introduce you to one of the tribe members, Melanie Rogers. I’m only a little late…..
I love how she is able to mix photography/art and poetry, coming up with a visual poem with a huge impact.
Enjoy, my lovelies!
Just in case it doesn’t show up right, below is the text of the poem:
A teasing bit of iamb sets the style,
enticing in simplistic words. Your pure
and unadulterated page endures
no verbiage on the cotton. To defile
such innocence with mediocre words is vile,
yet whispers come to sway the insecure.
Sophisticated confidence allures,
premeditated flattery beguiles…
You listen and obey…chaos ensues.
Attempts to tame the cadenced lines fall short,
until a valiant battle with your muse
allows you victoriously thwart
the silent struggle with an inky bruise:
Pentameter parameters abort.
