Verse Exercises

A portfolio for her verses

The memory rises

Reviewing a draft that has been sitting in my hard drive for so long, the acoustics of the verse tell me I enjoyed playing with the sounds while I wrote it, but the content of the verse doesn’t connect, and I despair. Do I only write to hear the sound of my own voice?

I reread again and allowed room for pause, for the words to seep. Then the memory rises, the sense comes through, of the time, the place, the moment, the trigger. I begin to understand the verse. I finally understand myself.
