While Reading Award Winning Poets

While Reading Award Winning Poets

While reading award winning poets, a couple (two) among the best

float above the rest

using imagery of drifting skyward, rising,

metaphors of heavenly quests?

 

“All these poems that drift upward in our free-floating minds….” (Jim, poet #1), and

 

“A boy runs along with an invisible string that goes

right up to the sky….” (Tom, poet #2)

 

Are they rising toward another dimension?

 

“Would you like to ride in my beautiful balloon, way up in the sky in my beautiful balloon?” (The Fifth Dimension, singing group)

 

“Or were they just, like I, lusting after Marilyn McCoo, too?” (Bob)
