Silk Neon Gothic

eyes closed, she
dances, corseted;
long dark hair flows
round her like her black
silk skirt, Victorian
hands in satin gloves
hold neon glow sticks
lost in time in music
with mysterious smiles.


This weeks Poetry Thursday prompt was to use their random prompt generator. This poem includes two words from the generator - silk and neon. I've posted another poem using the same words on Crafty Green Poet.

This is a hilarious layout-not being able to read comments off the bat. I like that idea. I don't know enough html to make mine stick out. This was my scene in college. Like a rave. Glowsticks, gothic clothes, and man do I love corsets. Just one of those things! Glad you left out the other normal ingredient. It would have turned the direction of the poem to a different place. (for those who don't know this would be drugs, usually x)

Very lovely scene. Makes me ponder just who belongs in what era. Interesting idea for a book.

Daisies, Rob - thanks!

Rose - I often wonder that too!

Chris - oh i know its so weird, I didn't realise that about the comments for a while but i like the design too much to want to change it. I'll need to see if I can change the comments (I don't know too much html either!), at least they show up in the box! Drugs, you say?!

The Victorian gloves holding neon glow sticks is such a great image! And I love the mystery of her closed eyes and smile -- lots of depth and wonderful feeling!

Tammy said...

Contrast and then blending. Well done Crafty!

Gino said...

You do do some wonderful weaving of images. Marvellous.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Clare, Tammy, Gino - thanks!

Chris, well though in a sense I like the mystery of the comments not showing up on the actual post, I thought it was more sensible to go for the option of having them appear! Another redesign!

Juliet... I Love this... I can hear the music and it makes me want to dance and sway like your subject.

Crafty Green Poet said...

Tracie - thanks - enjoy your dance!

Wonderful. I could see this one at a Handful of Stones, a goth woman entranced with a mood of music. Great images.
