Maidens of Karyai

three interlinked Lanturne poems


 

girls
that are
nut-tree bound,
strong, pretty and
tall

six
support
more than just
entablature’s
mould

their
dance steps
poised, as doves
midday snoozing
coo

beautifully architected to match the originals themselves

Beautiful Nic. I confess I had to look up Lanturne poems. I have never studied poetry at all. Only ever read it and so my poems are very much raw and unrefined. This was a delight and the shape reminded me of a candle holder.
