Seashell





Read the verse, a seashell
held close to the ear
the dim roar of a muffled ocean
and then it’s all here
on its shore, the doorbell
rings, recedes and disappears
and a foghorn trails its vessel
somewhere far over the horizon.

  6. i love the thought of reading a verse like a seashell to your ear....very cool...and some nice sounds to go along with it as well...

    and you should try the form...what is the worst? that you fail and still come away with a poem and a bit of learning?smiles.

    1. Thank you! am learning definitely...that's one Korean form and one Welsh, and before that the Tritina which is still kind of buzz, buzz, buzzing round in my head still...it's the internal rhymes I think that I am intimidated by :) but I shall not think about it now, let it settle to the bottom of the brain and see if something works itself out...thanks again for being here
