Word-High July: Makisig


I spied you across a room

Of jumbled words

A few crude rhymes

A moment of tentativeness

Stammered lyrics of intent

As the fog of language cleared

A beautiful girl appeared

Forever enshrined in humble verse.

  1. “Makes me smile, instead of tear up. The ending is so sweet and simple. Innocent prevails throughout these poems: “As the fog of language cleared/A beautiful girl appeared/Forever enshrined in humble verse. A magical innocence of spirit, heart, soul” she finally finished.

    I like how you express so well that feeling of not having the right words upon seeing someone attractive and well put togethe or just maybe making a bit more effort for you than they usually do. There’s this sense of wonder from the speakers view, and I think an intent from the woman he sees to impress 🙂
