    Poetical Inspiration Gone Mad

    She walked until the midnight sun
    met with the morning moon
    tree-shadows danced to Bowie
    - heroes died too soon;

    Madness can be silent…. but still.... it takes its toll
    - broken pencils and unfilled notebooks
    littered the stormy ground
    as a fibonacci clock spiral'd backwards
    not making any sound…

    Drumbeat, heartbeat
    bittersweet retreat
    her hair grew like Posidonia
    tumbling to her feet
    tendrils changing color
    sea-green to blue marguerite
    Drumbeat, heartbeat
    line repeat…

    Destiny married design
    shotgun wedding on the hill
    Humpty tripped them over
    and down they came like Jack n Jill
    and the fibonacci clock spiral'd backwards
    as the midnight sun met with the morning moon
    a celestial fiddle played and angels swooned
    Madness can be silent…. but still.... it takes its toll
    as she met the with midnight sun
    on a night dark and cold.

    Oooh! Very cool image you've paired with this. And I love the idea of the clock spinning backward in time. (Don't we all wish for that to happen, sometimes...) Lovely quick pace in the lines:

    Drumbeat, heartbeat
    bittersweet retreat

    Lot's to appreciate in this freestyle verse (and now, I guess I've answered my own question!)

    Bowie fan here, too... how sad was that last week? We've lost a creative soul who, I'm sure, had many more ideas that he just didn't have the time to share.

      Sharonlee, your image of the clock's hands in reverse reminded me of a song I wrote a couple of years ago. I posted The Broken Hands of Time, and would love to get your impressions of that piece! I was struggling to get the audio link working last night, but—thanks to the efforts of one of my teens—it's up and working now.

        I'd love to listen... I'm getting ready for college at the moment, so I'll happily listen when I return.
