Envisioning Poets’ Word-Garden - by Todd Harris (Competition Entry)

poets set free
word-garden worlds we see:

whirling rides, wind-bent trees
winding lanes, bumblebees
fabled fairies, spinning bobbins
flashing fair rides, reddish robins

of Fallen leaves, of fated love
what’s far below and miles above
darkest dreams of dread machines
waging wars with brave marines

of earthen space and frosted fire
tall whispered truths, drawn-deep desires
celebrating Excaliber’s magical birth
phantom oakwoods, middle earth

fruity sweetness, starkest cold
unchained wetness, well-mossed mold
cold-sweat courage, brainy brawn
reddish sunsets, fresh-greyed dawn

yellowed parchment, delicate lace
marble paths, immortality’s space
unbroken chains, young fool’s gold
fresh artful darts, tough trials grown old

curled orange petals, red crimson roses
frame double-helix-formed sorrows
fanciful phrases dream delicate poses
word-cast visions dream unmet tomorrows
