An Ode to a Voice

Out – from of a library shelf you looked at me
I reached out
touching your color
peeling back the covers
that hold your words
floating black ribbons
meander from white paper
across my virgin flesh
your vocal intonations
a seduction
of courage and whet incentives
an awakening
through syllabic art
transcribing the possibility of one’s true essence.


Written to celebrate the anniversary of dVerse Poets Claudia is tending and setting the bar high. We are all writing odes to poets.
