Bold Thoughts

Rating: 5.0
Today I am bold
I could do anything

I could
stand on the tips of my toes
reach into the sky
and dress myself with night diamonds

I could
scoop up the morning birds
and wear them
singing in my hair

Today I have been bold
I have done something

I have
whispered your name
into that space which is fear
and excitement

I have
let myself
think about you

Bold, like its title, yes indeed. I love this poem and its clever imagery. Also the courageous sentiments expressed. Write more please? Alison

This is a re-sounding poem! Very bold like its title. I wish you could polish it again and again (with time that is) until it achieves it's final version - one suggestion - it appears to me that the poem could do without the fourth stanza - the others seem to parallel one another except for this one. Overall, I'm very impressed with the tone and structure of the poem.
