July 2008 Poetic License

The Poetic License carnival will be up at Robin's blog, Pensieve Friday morning. She challenged us this month with a poetic form named after her blog. This is the form:

What is a Pensieve? A titled, five-line poem; each line correlates to one of the five senses--sight, sound, scent, taste, touch--and describes the subject (title). The goal is for the reader to take on the poem as his own, being able to "experience" your subject through your words, by seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling what you described.


So here is my poem for the month. I had a really meaningful time writing it!

The Word of God

Ancient Words in leather binding, crisp, thin pages trimmed in gold....like royalty
Crinkling and whooshing as pages flip by
Brushing my face with the scent of leather and the old pages
I feast on Words sweeter than the honeycomb, satisfying a craving deep within
Working the satin place marker between peaceful fingers, I ponder this Treasure lying across my lap

Crickl, funny I almost did one on the Bible too, but I couldn't manage to get my words together. You did the Pensieve justice. You did a great, great job. Glad I came by.

Ya know...I can TELL it meant something! What a beautiful rendering giving honor to what sounds like a special Bible :). Truly, the picture you've painted is so complete, it's almost as if it was sitting in front of ME!

So glad you came back this month:)!
