Shape Poetry - Memories

I love writing shape poetry. It's one of my favorite Poetry type :) Here's something on dreams and memories


I dream of silver stars and billows cottony,
tied delicately in bows
and sprawled beneath,
Dancing, gliding,
I paint my dreamscape,
 dripping my brush in
palette of life – vibrant
and rejuvenated, 

with giggles of summer days
and warmth of winter morning,
I tie a wreath of
silken solitude,
on my door.
The moon would sprinkle
silver dust,
 borrowed from celestial past,
cosmic ages ago,
when chasing butterflies with
fluffy white lambs,
was all I had to do.
Memories may haunt me down,
but I would cherish and hug them,
like an old friend. 
Sitting by the lake
we will chat,
about years gone by.

  14. You know for me this poem means so much more in the art form than just in the text. I would love to have the tech know how to do one of these. Enjoyed this.
