'wearing a ring' poets united #6 diamonds

placing the ice casing

round her turgid finger

longing to procrastinate

warlord union

haze formed before her eyes

trembling

worrying

feeling

unsatisfactory forecast

take a sip of wine in the Kremlin

as your atonement is percolated

filtered through crummy insights

  7. I enjoyed the scarcity of words to give maximum effect and the line 'take a sip of wine in the Kremlin'; may I humbly suggest that the word 'crummy' is a lesser poetic word than the others and seems out of place.

  9. IHHmmmm. I'm wearing a nail polish color called "Show Me
    The Ring". Guess I'll have to do that! Your poem made me think of Dr. Zhivago! Although I barely remember it! In any case, well written!

  11. Pamela, this 'diamond' poem seems a bit ominous with the unsatisfactory forecast. Not sure she should accept.

  15. Pamela -- Crummy? LOL -- you run out of words? You? Love the word, "turgid."

  16. Pamela (and Linda), I was thinking that I liked "crummy insight." It made it so mundane, although turgid got me, too. Well done, Pamela!
