    dotsThe Art of Erasingdots

    What you leave out
    is as important as what you say.
    The erased words remain implied.
    They took balance
    from your words,
    and after pruning,
    your word sculpture
    is no longer crooked.

      This might be an egotistical leap, but I feel like you had me in your mind at least partially when you wrote this.

      this is very interesting, dumplin. i've recently found some old writings that i've been "pruning." sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't. i like the idea of the words as branches on a tree and pruning them for a better effect, as it were. nice unique write!

      I like to leave things out and just tell them inbetween the lines. so I totally agree with you. the image of 'a word sculpture' is great. good poem.

      After pruning your word sculpture... I know you don't like to use punctuation, but there should be a comma between pruning and your.... to clarify. I couldn't understand the last line until I realized the punctuation was off.
    But other than that very good! That's why I like to handwrite things - you can still see what you erased. Computers it's like BLIP and it's gone. Love the word sulpture *imagines a topiary in the shape of the word 'WORD'* tee hee rating: great job, special: tee hee ~Cora Windova

      Would not us all aspire to have this poem written of them! Place this in huge letters right under the home page by Elite Skills.

      It not the largest poem, yet it doesn't need to be. The words deliver a heck of a punch. Nice Home Run...

      This rings so true. The biggest problem and wouldn't it be so nice if people you speak with would know what it is you imply. The world may be better off for it.

      I think it may be more aptly stated to say "They took imbalance from the words."....If it took balance than it would be crooked rather than being "no longer crooked." Do you see what I am trying to say? I am confusing myself....

    It is true that what we do not say is also important....reading between the lines.

      Well, darn it. I read your work again and now it makes greater sense. I apologize for the balance/imbalance debacle.
