This my entry to jilly’s July challenge for completing the poem, Fancy perfume and twirling ribbons by L. Burton from colorfulpen. It was hard and I felt like I went too far away but I hope hope that I kept the direction straight. L. Burton parts are in bold, mine are italicized.
Poems can ring, rise upon sun and moon
or bring momentum to an errant flame.
Maybe it falls face first, mangled too soon
its sound wailing against the sting of rain.
Dawn will singe your senses, set them all free
perform song and acrobatic dances
Cry out in celebration, yours to see
Fly out in to world, no traces.
Bumpy ride on words to world’s end,
Searching and connecting minds, miles away,
Through soul’s resonanting sound,
We stand as one, don’t sway.
Poem can ring, beyond ears and wind
From the flower’s petal, a torrent wind.
