Heightened Awareness





she stands

balanced on a precipice

creature of light

carnivale

magic, illusion, deception

ferris wheel flashing in soft twilight

flame to mouth

suffer the burn

sideshow sensation

beauty burning bright

  3. "...beauty burning bright."
    That's a great ending to a magic illusion like this. Well done.

  4. Oh, what a marvelous ending line. Perfectly chosen words - precipice, and the image of a carnival... And I have never liked ferris wheels.

  6. I like the mystery in this. The carnival images are excellent--all that illusion of beauty. Thanks for posting on Poetry Jam.

  7. I always want to be the side show instead of the main attraction - but maybe not in THIS carnival :)
