Stop listening to dust-tongued wisdom
Spoken in dark-vowelled syllables
That choke with marbling water-spoken jargon
Clear the moon-blown splinters
From your eyes
An owl-light shines from behind
The nocturnal see more in darkness
Than we see in light of day
Blinded by our own perception
When tear-culled feathers bring sorrow
Is it for what she knew she could not share?
dVersepoetspub.com prompt. Dylan Thomas used compound words and verbing nouns in his poetry. Not for the eyes to comprehend, but more for the ears to hear.
From a list of compound words, choose 4 and write a poem. I chose 5.
Dust-tongued, mon-blown, owl-light, dark-vowelled and tear-culled
This was fun and a challenge. I hope you hear it!
