Prism of Words

Hi all,

I am writing for Poetry Jam and the theme is prism.

Prism of words
On the doorstep
Of my heart

Your voice is the jewel
Unwrapped before me
On a crushed, red rose

And I choose
To unravel
Your vowels
And allow myself
To surrender
To light

Just beautiful. Love the last stanza too. Enjoyed:

"And allow myself

to light" especially!

Surrender to light, I like that ... letting go of control. Lovely poem, smiles :)

So romantic for a relationship with words. I can't help but feel what I do about them though.

Long time - no see!

Nice imagery - 'unravel your vowels', 'surrender to light'.
