Reasons

asked snow
of still life
“Why barren?
My drifts have soothed and cleansed.”

and
heart
began

BEATING

asked sun
of still voice
“Why silent?
My rays have warmed and brightened.”

and
lungs
began

BREATHING

asked rain
of still limbs
“Why stagnant?
My drops have restored and cheered.”

and
arms
began

STRETCHING

asked wind
then of me
“Why grounded?
My breath has moved and humored.”

and
I
began

SOARING

      1. That is very sweet of you. One thing that has helped me in all of my writing is to take poets or authors I really love and to mimic their style, line for line, for short passages using my own words. I learn more from that exercise than anything else I have done.😊

      2. You like horror, right. You might want to give Poe a try. I’ve worked with his shorter poems a bit. Or pick your favorite horror/thriller author and try a few paragraphs. I learn a lot this way. You can have fun with it and completely change the theme, just try to hold the structure. Milton was a genius…tough to replicate.⛄
