LoonyPandora - Daft Cow?

Daft Cow?

Strings of strings and other such things
Compiled, refiled, refined
Incantations untold, the squiggles unfold
Decoded, reloaded, unkind

Look ahead, look behind, grab what we can
A match, a word, a line
Dynamic expression, embedded return
A sigil, a slash, a sign

Deadline approaches, write it out quick
Lazy impatience employs
Indistinguishable from magic, true
Elegant prose or just noise?

TinyShine -

Hey, I really like this! It has great rhythm, which suggests to me you're not a stranger to writing as rhythm in writing is a skill, in my humble opinion

Hope we'll be treated to some more poetry soon, or is this a one off?!
