It's Billiant

The poem she wrote
the poem she read
the poem I heard
the one that connects

the poem she read
what was it I heard
the one that connects
or something absurd

the poem she read
she meant as a joke
the one that connects
with a wink, nod, poke

she meant as a joke
the poem I heard
with a wink, nod, poke
the poem she wrote

What a fun poem, Diane. The poem about a poem that connects to the absurd. LOL As always, your poetry is sparse and full of meaning.

I like this poem, Diane. I kow it is a particular poetic form, but it's name escapes me. (Robert would know...LOL.)

SO complex - so many layers - true that the poem I write and the poem you read, the poem you write and the poem I read, are never quite the same. Mystery. Thanks for the layer. I forget sometimes how complex communication is.

a Pantoum that makes sense and doesn't simply sound like an exercise.
Well done you.
