Readwritepoem#48 (words)

This is my map of you (loving warm and gentle)


To draw your geography
philharmonic
I start with this mound
under your belly and flow on
espresso fields in the sound
of the rain round
to this umbilicus mundi.

note: I could not decide where the commas belong so feel free to use your imagination.
words I used: philharmonic, belly, espresso, rain,field ...and considering the title 3 more words.

That is beautiful, shape sound and texture create a really lovely reading experience. I think its perfect without any commas.

Paul,
I am glad you noticed (and liked) the connection between shape, texture and sound for this time I did focus on form more than concepts.

i agree, wonderful as is no commas necessary

i really enjoyed the confluence of geography (place) and philharmonic (sound)

Gwendolyn,

Thank you for your comment.
I think the confluence between place and music comes from Pythagoras who thought that the universe is so perfect that it sings ...so one gets to love as one gets to sing (with a sense of harmony and perfection)...

i like the idea of a person possessing a certain geography to be explored, in this case through music, drawing, and poetry.

Christine,
thanks.
Even though it was not my idea to start with, I picked it up...I think my contribution was thinking in musical terms at this little expedition around one's body
