STOP

 

 

 

STOP

 

Stop,

be quiet,

do not speak

put the blinkers on,

now you can’t see them,

hide and they won’t see you.

    So many people wear blinkers these days. Good write.
    "There'e none so blind as those who don't want to see"

    Like the painting.

      Thanks - not sure if this a recognised poetry form (Brian can advise ) but it was not as easy as it looks, (123456 in words - not syllables ).

      Good write and painting.

      GOOD MORNING MICHAEL ~ I see we are in PYRAMIDAL MODE this morning ! In a 1234 etc poem one goes for words rather than syllables. Had you reversed them it would still have made sense and you end up with a DIAMOND as I did (deliberately) yesterday. Shape poems are linguistic fun rather than erudite ~ BUT ~ I like the message "Don't get involved ~ Be an Ostrich". Yours BRIAN

        thanks Brian yes I see it does work in reverse just as well - I wrote a FIBS yesterday along similar lines which I found more difficult - will post it sometime.

        The form you chose made me think of a pyramid's power to hide secrets from all who would pry - great watercolour too Michael.

        Certainly not an invisible poem Michael. And, I think I see you hiding in that painting 🙂 Very beautiful.

          Well I've just scrolled down the page to read your comments and I can't see it. Thanks WBL

          Sometimes we choose to not see things as they are, and sometimes we wish not to be seen. Colorfully expressed.,uniquely formed, with accompanying painting. Just lovely. - Phil A.
