Mirage: Breaking Enjambment Rules

Mirage       (an ekphrastic poem)

You’re half asleep, and then
You’re gone

A mirage of leaves
A rippled slope
Water’s mirror still as
Trees spread like fingers
Twisted curtains, fog
Light and bright
Entwined on a breeze

I laid out a picnic here once
In a mirage

  1. So beautiful and I find it heartbreaking from the beginning lines. I can feel the reminiscent vibe from the narrator; it feels so wistful in a way and poignant. It’s quite visceral and as well beautifully written!
