as a bubble on a puddle,
the minutiae of life inside its dome;
as a single pearl on silk,
soft hair parted by a comb,
a fresh egg or a glass of milk;
as blades of grass mingling
with a buttercup’s golden glow;
as the crisp tingling
when the accolade of rain
stops – and everything is turned down low.
Kim M. Russell, 2017
Kerry is hosting this week’s Sunday Mini-Challenge, when we return to the option of form poetry and write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but we may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). We can choose our own form or write in free verse, if preferred.
This weekend, our frame of reference is ‘Uncomplicated Things” – from the second line of the poem, ‘The Moon’, by Leonard Cohen.
