OctPoWriMo Day 13 - Sculpting a Poem

Sculpting a Poem

I pare off 
spare phrases that
run like seas of pearls
swirled in circles of
pure beauty

each cut slices
away extraneous gems
until the poem's heart
is exposed to beat
naked before the world

  1. Yes! As someone who dabbles in both sculpture and poetry, this analogy works beautifully!

  2. This is extraordinary, Katelyn. I love the alliteration with the "s" sound and the "p"
    "I pare off
    spare phrases that
    run like seas of pearls..."
    And you really got across the image that goes with the title.
    Thank you. xoA
