Inside Out (Poem)

Inside Out

Tears in folds
glance steel-ribbed harbors
of light. You
plumb how deep
the heart tracks sorrow, inverts
your view inside out.

© 2011 Maureen E. Doallas


I offer this poem* for today's One Shoot Sunday Picture Prompt Challenge at One Stop Poetry, where you will find an interview with photographer Adam Romanowicz and images of his work, including the image above that inspired this poem. To see more of Romanowicz's photographs, visit 3scape Photos.

Go here to read Chris Galford's interview with Romanowicz and then scroll down for instructions on participating in today's event.

* This poem is written in Shadorma form, which requires six lines of no or no set rhyme that follow a 3-5-3-3-7-5 syllabic pattern.

It's perfect - perfect picture of the picture. And a poetry form to boot.

Every word matters, I love it in its entirety.

Awdures said...

I agree with Glynn, you've somehow managed to encapsulate all the abstract picture shows with a wise choice of words Maureen.

This is beautiful. Love the thought you capture of the inside-out view. I love your shadormas.
