“Poetry Mind Pantoum” by Victoria Crawford

Poetry Mind Pantoum

Dedicated to my writing partner, George Ross, poet, Boston, MA

Seeded words take root to flourish and bloom
in the mutable wells of poetry mind
diving deep for sounds of pantoum,
syllable bubbles drifting up unrhymed.

In the mutable wells of poetry mind
breathing counted in and out subsumes
syllable bubbles drifting up unrhymed,
counted words arise in mercurial plumes.

Breathing counted in and out subsumes
quicksilver reflection as it grows,
counted words arise in mercurial plumes,
mantra tones form into poesy flows.

Quicksilver reflection as it grows,
seeded words take root to flourish and bloom
mantra tones form into poesy flows,
diving deep for sounds of pantoum.
