Another new experiment that I think you will really like.
I’ve teamed up with Myss Jaynie Kat this time round – the twist for this pearl is that it was written across Twitter, so it is really fast, raw and powerful.
We used the NaPoWriMo prompt of honesty and getting things off your chest to inspire us.
Hope you like it.
A Touching Moment (by TooFullToWrite & Myss Jaynie Kat)
Words left unspoken
A sting in their tail
Barbaric but comforting
Tongue bitten in denial
Always hearts truth
Lead to reproof
Scars run deep and rampant
Indelible, invisible ink
A shadow cast across the face
Masking pain and suffering
Truth’s passion heals
Though darkness tries
Souls touch and flare
Past catches up
But it is never too late
Dreams can all but consume
Feelings hard to translate
Dreams entice, excite, enlight
Words form the bridge
Then only touch unites
A truth forever in our sight
We brought our plane into land
Never thought that we could
Fly so high for so long but then
Life can be full of serene surprises
Serenity’s flight, thought becomes touch
Touch becomes one
A moment’s perfection beyond the night
As we gaze into each others eyes…
8 thoughts on “Poem / Poetry – Poetic Duet Using Twitter With Myss Jaynie Kat – “A Touching Moment””
Huh? How did you do this on twitter? One line each, or one verse each? Inquiring minds want to know…
My usual method is one verse each by e-mail. Myss Jaynie Katt was on Twitter at the time writing poetry, so I jumped at the chance to write with her. Over the next hour, we then played Twitter tennis and wrote it until it was finished. If you would like to to do a duet you would be more than welcome, as my door is always open. You don’t have to do it by Twitter too (I appreciate the pace is pretty frantic), we could start one off by e-mail, all we need is a theme. I’m happy to start the ball rolling or you can start if you prefer 🙂
Ummm, OK – she’s says nervously! My poetry is a little old school and a lot rhymey but I will try. And yes, you push the ball and I will try to push it back and see what we get. Interesting. I will direct tweet you my gmail.
An interesting concept to create….love it thank you for sharing.
It was my pleasure Tammye, I am getting to write such lovely poetry with so many wonderful people. If you would like to have a go at a poetic duet then I would be glad to start one off with you!
What an honor has been bestowed, what a tribute here is owed…
The honor and pleasure is all my Tammye. Do you have something that you really like/love or are passionate writing about? If so, then let me know and I will use that as the them for the piece. Otherwise, if you are happy for me to pick a random theme then I can do that too!
If you will pick then I will follow…can be something as simple as a swallow lol 🙂
