Anthology - Poem by Lori Boulard

paper shards of lives
souls
children
Standing in line to jump in
or out
The sun’s third born holds precious many
fueled by the moon, love and hunger
amazing many
whose words
fly
stab
laugh
cry
bending their paper hands
just enough
to join at the binding

    This reminded me of the strings of paper dolls we would cut out of paper, and they wound up connected - only at the hands. Wonderful Images. Scarlett (Report) Reply

    It sounds like you've defined poetry and taken on the universe. (Report) Reply

    many lives twist
    in the harsh wind of life
    and poems
    demand clear looking no blinking
    a fine exploration

    Ah yes, words do 'fly, stab, laugh, cry' and when one does an anthology, poetry is often overwhelming. Sounds like you're holding your own on this one. This ought to go it as an introduction.
