Dramatic Interplay: Poem for dVerse Poets Pub

When I finished my observations post for today, I went to my wordpress reader to see what other writers were up to and saw Frank Hubeny’s prompt for the dVerse Poets Pub. The prompt is to write a poem of fourteen lines.

Since my week of observation is almost up and I’ll need to turn it all into a poem soon, I thought I would test out some observation-to-poem by putting together a few of today’s observations into fourteen lines.

Dramatic Interplay

A morning, exploring light and shadow
backlit life turned to space
to dive into
shadow painted leaves and lilacs
on walls, over mountain murals
and in my mind
I look behind
the subject to focus
on the light
the blur and glow
excite the drama
each click dramatic
scene in contrast
light painting of the in between

  1. What a great exercise and admirable discipline, Maria, to write observations and then turn them into a poem! I enjoyed your camera-click journey through light and shadow. I love the phrases ‘backlit life turned to space’, ‘blur and glow’, and ‘light painting of the in between’. The images illustrate the poem beautifully.

    • Oh, that is upsetting. My mother recently mentioned the ads on wordpress were disappointingly inappropriate for my site as well. Unless I pay for a premium site, I don’t have any control.
