[02] Acquitted Desire

Rating: 3.6

A butterfly died of a heart attack
While you were laughing on the window
Catfish jumped on the bank of a tank
Cool sleeping dog shaking dreams like tail.

Trust blooms in front of summer
Melting heart flies over floating algae
Snail crossing prickle heat zone of back
Acquitted desire moves around bangle.

COMMENTS OF THE POEM

A butterfly dies of a heart attack...Wow! That is poetic license and well wriiten prose. These fews lines show us how we live at times in a myopic way and in parallel worlds all at the same time. Good write.

'Poetry is the music of thoughts, conveyed to us in the music of language' I don't know the author of this quote but it speaks well of this poem...I love that you dared! Dorothy

Desire is rightly acquitted! I like the way you put the ideas short and sweet!
