100 Tuesdays

100 Tuesdays

Dribbling
out of a hundred Tuesdays
are scratches carved black and white
on mimed paper of zeros and ones.

Words
etched

and sounds
stretched
becoming sketches of experiences lived
drawn to adorn the soul with frivolity and grace.

Lines and stanzas echoing humanity’s glory
tears
spilling
oceans
to

swim.

Emotions journey through the surreal
to the dark side
of the enlightened psyche

to find a glowing seed
sprouting dVerse.

Written for #OLN in honor of dVerse poets celebrating #week100

      Thanks Mary;

      I was just wanted to add some special spacing and whatnot. I could not figure out the html code for that so I found an alternative. 🙂

      Thanks for reading and commenting.

      Cheers Tony;

      I think you could be right about reading the poem itself. I like the movement, but think I will change the rate.

      Thanks for reading. Cheers!
