"A man's work is nothing but this slow trek to rediscover, through the detours of art, those two or three great and simple images in whose presence his heart first opened" –Albert Camus


Of lilac and linen, ivory and love,
My rough hands
Take hold. A dove
Of lilac and linen, ivory and love,
I wrest from the sooty doom above
And restore to airy lands.
Of lilac and linen, ivory and love,
My rough hands.

Hello, this is Fayrouz. I really enjoyed this, it smelled like fresh laundry, very soft yet rough with the contrast of the flowers and air...and the rough hands. Keep writing and good job on getting published. I was published once, too. My poem is called Stealing Beauty From a Larkspur.

Keep writing!

First, I'd like to thank everyone who commented or rated. (Though I suspect all of you except Theresa S. are related to me.)

Second, I wonder how this ended up in the Free Verse category. I don't think I posted it there... it's a triolet.... Oh, who cares? I'm being silly.

Mortimer Brewster: The name Brewster is code for Roosevelt.
Teddy Brewster: Code for Roosevelt?
Mortimer Brewster: Yes. Don't you see? Take the name Brewster, take away the B, and what have you got?
Teddy Brewster: Rooster!
Mortimer Brewster: Uh-huh. And what does a rooster do?
Teddy Brewster: Crows.
Mortimer Brewster:... It crows. And where do you hunt in Africa?
Teddy Brewster: On the veldt!
Mortimer Brewster: There you are: crows - veldt!
Teddy Brewster: Ingenious! My compliments to the boys in the code department.

This one is my FAVORITE....It's really really great......
