This deserves a second look. Don’t go into sing-song as you read this… pay attention to what’s happening in the wording.

Today for Poetics, I am asking you to choose some lyrics, preferably one line from a favorite song and grow your own poem from it. You are not limited to the original theme of the song. Instead, forge your own poetic path. Be serious or silly. Just be sure to highlight the line(s), giving credit to the song and artist.
She has diamonds on the soles of her shoes,
spotlight swirling as she moves–
She glitters, she glows like a new moon,
only time she’s not consumed–
Music lifts her to another plane
where she can put aside her pain–
Now she’s spinning, a diamond top,
but avert your eyes when the music stops–
(from Paul Simon’s, Diamonds on the Soles of Her Shoes)
