Pantoum Poem

December 9, 2011

Hello! I think I’ve missed a few weeks.  I’m posting two poems to make for it.  This week I experimented with structured poetry, which had some funny results.  The following is a pantoum.  This particular poem could be subtitled “aka where Natalie lost track of her similes” because they make sense about half-way through and then just descend into madness.  In any case, how do you like it?

Solitude

When we seek it out

loneliness blooms

into something wanted

like a flower in winter

 

Loneliness blooms

like weeds untended

into something wanted

like sunlight on snow

 

Like weeds untended

creeping over stones

Like sunlight on snow

facades glitter to melt

 

Creeping over stones

into something wanted

facades glitter to melt

when we seek it out.
