The Priest & The Pauper

  1. Wow, Renee, there is some beautiful imagery in this poem, which I think could shine through a more if you gave it a little room to breathe.
    I love the image of ‘lilies… embellishing the mundane… day to day acrylic humanity’ and the ‘ignited borealis… Gilding the atmosphere’. This line reminded me of a scene from a Heironymus Bosch painting:’demi-devils the vox populi that screams into the blighted night’.My favourite lines are:
    ‘Previously, I peered at the moon as just such, and a flower only as benign as its petals
    Blue was never violet, and the crimson color which radiated from a rose’s lips simply kissed the stratosphere red’

  2. You have a unique style, which I very much appreciate. Your poems are a treasure trove and a pathway into a delightful field of words. I’m enjoying the journey. 🌷

  3. ‘Previously, I peered at the moon as just such, and a flower only as benign as its petals’

    beautiful spiritual poem.
