This worked really well - almost an ars poetica.

Linda Jacobs

Ooooh, I'm liking this one so much! The lines blend so well and lead believably to the conclusion.


Her lines are intensely beautiful and you've put it together so well. I found her not an easy poet to read but she rewards your patience so well.


i'm in love with the idea of the cento as a dialog with the poet. a love affair. :)


Wow that is really beautiful! What lovely poem.



what a lovely poem I meant!

Nicole Nicholson

I really like this. I'm also dialoguing with another poet, but in a different way, for a project I've been working on for the last few months. Except I'm imagining, and then writing, his half of the conversation.

This was well done. I think that these lines are my favorite:

"Other’s will speak of your spirit’s tendrils reaching/forth to meet dragons that rise from their bloody scales/And what I heard was my whole self"

because this rings true for me when I write.
