Capriccio

This entry is part 24 of 47 in the series Morning Porch Poems: Summer 2012

Some words lisp before you can
even say them: say thistle.

Say chant. Say tuft
lit up by the sun
. Fields

spread with a wealth
of accidental sound.

  1. Me too. Luisa’s poems are so often on the long side, it’s easy to forget she can turn out a mean micropoem, too.

  2. Thanks, Peter and Dave. Once I caught a whiff of how this poem might sound, those sounds pretty quickly drew me in.
