“Tell all the truth, but tell it slant…”
the secrets of the night,
weaved in perfection whilst I slumbered
wrapped in a blanket of his threadbare devotion…
spreading too thinly his gold phrases
the charm of a wordsmith
brave against illusion
arising from his web of deceit
dripping molten loyalty, faithfulness and truth…
leaving integrity in his wake
then we arise in Light,
The epigraph is from an Emily Dickinson poem.
The structured poetry form is a Triquain, created by Shelley A. Cephas. It is a poem with several creative variances and can be a rhyming or non-rhyming verse. My poem above is variation of a Triquain Swirl. Triquain and Triquain Swirls are always centered.
