That perfect word, now gone.
It fit so well between this and that.
How could it have been lost?

The potential beauty of rhythm and rhyme
forever destined to dwell as a fragrant vapor.
A beautiful might have been.

The ultimate image, lost
in the moment of a misfired synapse.

It was there, so clear,
screaming its significance
begging for a pen to validate it’s glory…

But no glory comes…

The everyday joy of a poet…

Very nice write. You are so intuitive.

Reviewed by Cryssa C 6/17/2009
This poem conjures up images of poetry, but also of that perfect word that is on the tip of your tongue when you are trying to communicate with someone...that word that would clarify your point perfectly...but that you can't seem to find. :~)
Well written!

So many words, so little rime. Or should that be rhyme?

Great write. So much in so few words...

Sis as always you write with vigor that comes only from inside. This is great as usual. The beautiful that is, comes from those that read our works and are entertained by them. I so agree with Thunderduck, that glory is never ours. May the Lord Jesus bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and at your side constantly. With much love in my heart, stubborn to a fault, joy tot he world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little terrified sister, Barbie

Profoundly written, Lori. Poetry with rhyme and rhythm amount to nothing. Perfection is always sought after in every poem. This is well written.

Reviewed by Kate Burnside 5/30/2005
... except in your case, Lori, where even the "ones that got away" mutate into the "ones saved and immortalised in transformation"! Deft and stylish and misleadingly "simple"... this is triumph not tragedy! Luv it! Kate xx

How well we can all emphazize with this poem and the lost that from time to time as you say in your poem befalls all writers. Loose your attention for a second by a phone call or door bell and they are lost forever. and yes some of the words we lose could make a difference between a poem and a great poem.

Laffin!! How true this is, Lori. My most inspired moments happen at 60 MPH on the freeway with no way to commit them to paper..sigh. It was so clear and so profound but it got lost somewhere before the offramp. Great write and one I can totally identify with.
Take care,
