Perch on a wire
Sing your soft drawn out lament
Fly like a bullet
Your plump body hunted squab
Innocent eyes pointed tail
A very thought provoking poem cleverly written. I concur with Nosheen's brilliant comment.
Yes, there is much that is lamentable. Thank you for your eyes and voice!
Where love is blind there lament is client! great to read
Your reply is riddled. Nice! Love laments the cost.
2) If you put out a book with these riddle poems, I'd be the 1st to buy a signed copy. Forcing mine overactive imagination to go into overload. With such Great Fun!
I'm glad you're having fun Richard! Thanks for the great feedback. For now I'll just post them here
As bizarre as this may sound, your poem could be about Leonard Cohen and the pigeon who flew the coop...his manager. Forcing Cohen to come out of retirement...and 'fly like a bullet'!
Richard, nice fit! Thanks for the introduction to Leonard Cohen. I enjoyed his song "Bird on the wire"…"I have tried in my way to be free" love it! I look forward to listening to more! I like his song "Hallelujah" but had only heard it sung by other artists.
Kesav, I agree with you about Nosheen's comment. I love watching the shape of a poem in the eyes of another poet and the added meaning that comes with it. Thanks for adding meaning to my poem by your viewing and comments!
Nosheen is no less an analyst a critic than a poet. Nice riddle poem, Rob. An electrocuted bird? The innocent metaphor
