What a treasure
Agree with Angie--it is a very cool sculpture-- On the poetic side of things, the double meanings here are very poignant, Helen, and there is a sweetness that is well conveyed and a kind of sympathy readily aroused too. k.
You have a better grasp on 'artifice' than I do, Helen. Are there lessons in 'artifice' writing? I started with artifice but it got to being too truthful. Not even the last line helped. I did want readers to think it all might be farce. Maybe it is my straight face coming through?..
Nice oneMuch love...
Beauty is in the eye of those with heart, I say.
Dearest Helen,What a wonderful poem with a lot of LOVE nestled within those lines...So very true and each artifice is being viewed and valued so different by different people.Hugs,Mariette
Subtle - but a lot is contained in this poem once you sit with it a bit and let it tell you its secrets. Very well executed take on the prompt.
You did well...I could not be inspired without being ugly.Have a very creatively blessed day.
Very lovely, as always, darling!xoxox,CC
I have just found you, but I have to say, reading your poetry, has made my day, wonderful talent, thank you for sharing so many lovely poems.janzi
seeing from the inside - or seeing what is inside perhaps. Either way, it's what art should be. Lovely!
