I watch your kite disappearing -
slowly slipping through your fingers
like a defiant act of love.

The laurel wreaths I crowned you with -
sweet Adonis to a maid,
shivering on your cool, wet skin.

I said that I could set you free

but you never would believe me.
December Form Challenge, 2012 :iconkiwi-damnation::iconprojectdfc:


The Indriso is an Italian form that is similar to the sonnet except its structure
features two 3 line stanzas (terzains) and two 1 line stanzas. It is meant to
have a melodic flow like a song and combine this with the punchy one line
statements.

If you want to build a ship, don't drum up people together to collect wood and don't assign them tasks and work, but rather teach them to long for the endless immensity of the sea.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

for me, you teach with the immensity of the sea of words

Wow, that's a fantastic quote, and I'm going to say "ditto" to your comment of being taught with Brendan's words. :nod:
