"I am hearing poetry when awake,
dreaming poetry when asleep,
breathing poetry with each breath,
I am living in a poem."
When I had seen this pic, I had so wanted to write something that included the string of jewels.... :) as is expected, i cudnt come up wid anything....:pi love this piece... especially coz it's not just a vague description of happiness or sadness... it's a real tribute to Marilyn....wat form of poetry is this? i mean the decreasing number of syllables....
Thank you JaLpAri..the poem form is called Nonnet
I'm feeling a twinge bit like Norma tonight. Sigh.
Very true words.
Ah...she *was* broken, wasn't she....?Excellent write.....so beautiful in form.......:)
I've never heard of a Nonnet, it is such an alluring form befitting the subject. Well done!
That´s sad! Well written.
I love this, Susie.
I love the sinister image "serpentine sparkle" suggests as a metaphor of self destruction. "...glitter named Marilyn..." perfectly punctuates the image I see through your words. Rick
Ben, I have had moments this year where I have felt like Norma Jean also.
Thank you Anthony
Thank you Mimi..it is a form I just recently learned to write in.

@Janet..thank you. I only learned the form last month. @Evalinn Thank you @Thank you Laurie
Rick, thank you. When I saw the photo prompt I immediately thought temptation wrapping itself around Marilyn until it destroyed her.
Content and form ---- very nice.
Helen, thank you

BEautiful and wistful nonnet, does justice to her troubled existence...
