    dotsRhythm and Rhymedots

    A single written thought rests in a little brittle box
    The thought? A word. Which if one heard,
    Would make her die of shock

    So she hid it in a dreamland desert
    ‘Neath a sickly sickle moon
    Under amethyst skies, so strange to one’s eyes,
    Blanketing bright golden dunes

    And after a time its location was lost
    In that sea of shifting sand
    Waiting, it seems, to be freed from our dreams
    By an errant or spiteful hand

      I am more then impressed by your use of assonance and off-rhyme here. Very difficult to do well and it's a skill I fruitlessly assail by pounding my skull angrily against it.

    Question though, is this a rail against my beloved fixed-forms!?! Well, no I guess not that so much as hiding behind the mechanics and not employing them in your service.

    It got me thinking and that's quite an accomplishment on a Monday!

      i wonder who the she is and i get the feel of a Pandora's box kinda story, this was a well written piece...i feel the rhythm was a bit thrown off in the second verse because of a few extra words...but that is my only crit...i thought it should go something like this...

    So t'was hidden in a dreamland desert
    ‘Neath a sickly sickle moon
    Under amethyst skies, so strange to one’s eyes,
    Blanketing bright golden dunes

    whatcha think about that?...

    anyway your discriptivness and vivid mind made this beautiful!

      I want! I need! that was really different. your writing about a word. but you never tell us what it means. what is it about? I bet _you_ don't even know. I love surprises. get back to me if when you figure this out.!

      I read this again and was taken once more by the whole Pandora's box imagery. Then I saw that I already said that in another comment I made 3 months ago. The poem affected me in the same manner which says a lot for the piece...

    You may say the poem is about nonsense and pretty words but I don't think so. I found no nonsense. I thought it was very poetic. A secret box hidden in the golden sands of dreams. Very unlikely it will ever be found but the fear that it will be hangs in the air...

      i like it because it's confusing, has great imagery, and wow...confusing imagery. Bad, but in this case good. Very skillfull choice of words.

      Good one,really good. only one little point you might look at..in the line about the amethyst skies .."which seem strange to one’s eyes,"...that last bit seems a little contrived..maybe just juxtapostion the words..or leave one or two out? Just a thought..I seem to trip there...but then i trip a lot ..thanks for sharing, Silver
