Repetition worked well! Love it. Wish I’d written it!
Time smooths sharp edges
Mellows rigid perspectives
Time opens our blind eyes
Seeing others as equals
Colorblind // first step to peace
Time shakes us up
tumbling through our little
blip of eternal sinus rhythm,
spitting us out like grape seeds
to be replanted in another
place and time
Time sometimes just
swallows us whole
Painting “Splitting Space and Time”: Dwight L. Roth
Today at d’Verse, Laura asked us to look at the use of repetition in our poetry. Epiphora, from the Greek means ‘to turn about/upon’… and is used to drive in a point through poetic repetition. I am using the word time in my poem to show how we flow and change in time itself.
The painting is an abstract that I did a number of years ago. I thought it fit well with my theme!
