dVerse Fragments

Five Tercet Fragment Poems

I.
Writing letters with
Words slipping in between
Rusty spells gone off


II.
Cold, and she’s frightened
Of moonlight. It’s ice
Like bleached bone and whispers

III.
It’s a long journey through winter
It’s alive
And standing.          There

IV.
Everyone is somewhere
You reappear like a sorrow
That keeps on calling

V.
We were wolves
When it wasn’t too cold.
All we hear is wind.      Howling

  3. Nailed! My favourite was V, but that could be Dauphy’s influence. 🐾

  4. I really think you’ve done this well. The stanzas are fragmented, none makes sense, but each leaves an impression nonetheless. I’m impressed!

  6. There is a density of meaning in what at first looks like fluff. The cold seeps through each one. I like the creative spacing you used in some of them.

  9. “Ooff” was my first reaction, meaning that spellbinding moment. A real thrill reading the fragments concept practiced like this. And ALL of it worked: I mean the typography, the spaces, the stark white background, photo; it all worked to heighten the doses received. Stark is the word, with each word you placed seemingly polished by the same wind that bleached the bone, almost not just metaphorically. loved. All. The last stanza…..aïe aïe aïe as we say in French when stunned…
