any picture comes to my mind,
i try to give it a body of words,
love to sit on other blooms,
for honey, color, fragrance........
oh i like the image of the firefly words - how they flutter and pull you with them and give you a home... some poems feel like a home to me where it's just great and relaxing to be...
great visuals in this... i see the words glowing
...fluttering glow words ...simply grand!
I like the idea of firefly words. Just as fireflies blaze for only a short time, so often do our words.....until they fade away, no longer part of our own or others' memories.
I am with Mary on this - Firefly words is a real highlight and the image really works and makes it come alive
Firefly words - clever observation. Anna :o]
Clever vision you have. and a great observation about life. :) Beautiful.
Yes, oh yes, the firefly imagery was masterful, but your first 3 lines were a clever & powerful set up, poet lost in a surrealistic landscape where words become mass & sentences become lifelines.
I love the firefly words...."short-lived fluttering glow-words". Awesome!
You contrast well the void versus the tiny articulations that span it (for now, today, this moment). The poem as a "tiny home," indeed. Well done!
The overwhelm of words and the challenge of picking just the one or two... great description of something I'm sure we can all relate to.
I too like the image of the firefly words. Words shine and then sadly go.
beautiful.....I like the closing lines so much....
I like your description of being overwhelmed by the wave of mesmeric words ...almost intimidated by them.
"My firefly words are out" - what a glorious image. It made me think of sparks of inspiration flitting about.
I could feel the construction. I'm glad in the end the mass of words found their way out slowly, fluttering as fireflies.
That is a very fresh and fitting metaphor - the firefly words against the big dark night of anonymity.
I tried to post a comment earlier - not sure if it went through. Absolutely love the home words build for us, such a relief, a true destiny.
I love the idea of tiny home, as it makes a big difference nevertheless ~ Excellent response Sumana ~
The poem really came to a conclusion that felt so good to read.with drama in the words and rhythm.
Sparkling work Sumana - you bring so much to life here...
Love the "gargantuan mass of words"
ha. how fanciful, the firefly words that you release....an interesting contrast to the snake slither in the first part....
Thank you for stopping by and sharing your valuable thoughts.........
