A Poem by MOON

Furnish the room with ink and paper

 and the bound smell of love

between the lines , artists with words

 penned in velvet covered glove

walk in dreams of past lives,

 follow the flight

 of a white angel  dove

In words I shall find you humming

 heartfelt, kingdoms from  above

Furnish my heart with a book of song

Written in azure ink

Let me find its gold and silver

 thread let me find its  mink

In your sorrows and moments of bliss

let me from your cup drink

Furnish my life with a pen crafters art

Let the chains unlink

So many great lines and you bring out so many aspects of why the written word means so much. Love
"the bound smell of love
between the lines"


"In your sorrows and moments of bliss
let me from your cup drink"

Isn't that what breaks the chains - feeling we are not alone?

Okay, this poem is amazing in many ways. The best thing about it is the imagery, obviously. I can picture in my mind the velvet glove, a fountain pen writing azure calligraphy, and the chains binding us that only the written word can wrench apart. Personally, I don't know how to feel about the rhyming of "-ink" in the second half of your poem. I'm not sure I like it. However, everything else is so beautifully done that I really must applaud you.

you are the epitome of imagery. i have never read anything better. i like the pen and ink concept. it took me right to the doorstep of a scribe writing. and it reminds me of a book i read. the scribers wrote things into reality. the book is called 'the barbed coil'

This is a brilliant piece of writing...the imagery is so vivid, especially where the verbs are involved, like the furnishing in the second-to-last line...that's my favourite part :)

This is a conglomerate of all of the best imagery in the world. You had me feeling the ending by the time I got to it, what a beautiful slope into tangible expression.

I find this piece to excellent and enjoyable to read. The words flow easily and the rhyme comes so naturally, like a song in my mind. You paint a wonderful picture, and I would love to have my own words recorded in such a manner as calligraphy on papyrus.
