Through The Hole In The Glass (Poetry by Clive Blake of Cornwall) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry


Behind an old window,
A young girl often gazed,
Through a thin shattered pane,
Through a large hole unglazed.

Wistfully observing
The uncaring world pass,
Feeling invisible
To the more wealthy mass.

When life became too tough,
Her daydreams would unfold,
As protection against her
Brave hopes growing cold.

Where her mind could explore,
Expanding like light-gas,
And her thoughts could escape
Through the hole in the glass.




--------------------------------------------------------------
This 'phoem' is titled "Through The Hole In The Glass” (Poetry by Clive Blake of Cornwall) Phoetry – Visual Poetry – Concrete Poetry - Poetry,
from the 'Phoetry Book', View Points and Points of View".

I describe Phoetry as a fusion of poetry and photography.
I came up with the Phoetry concept in 1994.
Phoetry can also be described as Visual Poetry and loosely described as Concrete Poetry.

The poetry is by Cornish Poet, Clive Blake cliveblake.deviantart.com/

Lovely, sad and yet still hopeful.B^)

Please, when you have the time, check out "The larger Puzzle" in my Giving in to Gravity folder and tell me what you think. I value your opinion, as we are traveling parallel paths in illustrative poetry.
