“Sepia” – poem by Jennifer Jordan

Here’s a villanelle from Jennifer. I’d love to know what got her writing in this format…

Amber waves form rippling hues

Subtle lights within the frame

Washed from skies of violet blue

 

Beset confinement to amuse

Perched while posing hidden pain

Amber waves form rippling hues

 

Collapse of thought from minds obtuse

From a shutter; pulse of vein

Washed from skies of violet blue

 

Maple syrup glazed portrait views

Halos of light to a shadow’s refrain

Amber waves form rippling hues

 

Earthen sables bath the muse

Wordless stories of sepia stain

Washed from skies of violet blue

 

A moment’s escape too soon to lose

From eyes to image printed gain

Amber waves form rippling hues

Washed from skies of violet blue
