between two words (1)

Poem #47 from a series of poems drawn from the imagination and collected as: a Bachelard reverie.

Back to Bachelard and me – Introduction


between two words
that rhyme
lies the metaphor

like the magpie
and its song

like a round of firewood
and the blade
of my axe

there
the image
unfolds
in its personal melody

the ballad moves me
to the high country
when I close
my eyes

I sing the mountains
blue
the valleys

my story

so tell it
like a tale
in a song revealed
by the in-between place
and time
of two words
that rhyme
