unwinds on mellow waves
harmonizing with the world
"makings for poetry with sound."
A note on form: I was a bit nostalgic for the clarity pyramid this morning. It has been quite some time since I last wrote to this form. For some reason, I have always found this form interesting and a bit challenging; granted I often wrote it to the 3WW challenge, which added extra constraints. Typically the syllable constraints (1,2,3 // 5,6,7 // 8) lend themselves toward a triangular structure (thus pyramid), but as is the case with some crazy multi-syllable words this effect is not always fully achieved. This piece would be an example of minor departures.
On inspiration for this piece: Over at dVerse Poets Pub, Poetics is exploring the influence of music. I have often felt a very strong connection to music. I actually wrote a series of poems that focused on the cathartic effects of music on me when the world is spinning out of control. This piece has overtones of the same. I also (for almost a year) would write a poem a week inspired by a piece of music. It was definitely a fun and enjoyable (though sometime frustrating) experience.
