Aposiopesis

Struck midsentence
honeysuckle breath
tracking
sweet-sour redolence
of youth

No making sense
station stuck
approaching
dissentience
at full throttle

  1. I can really see the silence smelling in your words... a silence filled with meaning. Maybe it's the meaning not the words that is communication.

  2. Perhaps one should be more mobile not stuck at home.This by itself is beneficial to health. Thanks Marian!

  3. The heady exuberance of the scent of honeysuckle is conveyed dramatically through your choice of words... (runs to grab a dictionary)

  4. I did get to the dictionary, on-line, "sent by Marian."
    Aposiopesis, yes more embarrassing to me than going to sleep in church. And it never, hardly ever, comes back what I wanted to say.
    Dissentience I probably won't worry about, I'm not an argumentative person. I don't watch war movies. I do say something controversial and then quietly back away until more stirring is needed.

  7. Your poems always make me look up words. Thankfully, they're wonderful and economical poems so looking for a dictionary doesn't slow me down too much. Thanks for the wonderful poem.
