A Landmark Moment

This is a landmark moment – because for the first time on this blog, I am publishing some readers’ poems!  And to start with, we have two from Elaine:

COLOURED
Indigo dark drop
Hits the flood
A river
Tidal forming
I am coloured
By You

SPANGLES
Detached from concrete
Spangles fly
Pinprick my halo
With a needlepoint of colour

I really like these: they pinpoint a moment of perception.  I especially like the idea of a person being coloured by someone else like a drop of indigo in water.

And continuing the ‘moment of perception’ theme, here’s a haiku from Mark about the ‘two faces/vase’ illusion:

Two faces talking

a moment of confusion

a vase between them

Sums it up perfectly, I think.

Please let me have more, people!  Mondays are YOUR space now!
