Poetry Video: Heart of Glass

Today I released a new videopoem — “Heart of Glass”. Just like “Solstice Magic” I created this using still shots from my iPhone, a Sharpie, paper, scissors, and common objects (this also includes a few photos taken with my iPad). Enjoy!

The poem appears below:

In human hearts,
muscle transmutes into glass:
translucent lava lithe enough
to beat its own drum but
fragile enough to fracture,
or shatter into shards like curved hands,
or rain in ruby dust upon
our bone chamber floors.

I of the computer mind
hold my fire-tempered heart
in my hands.
Look into this heart,
a blood-stained glass lamp
stuffed with line, metaphor, and rhyme
that speak for me when lips cannot:
in its scarlet shine,
you may see your own reflection.

    Amazing Work, N. I especially enjoyed the insertion of a snippet of classical music and ABSOLUTELY LOVED shattering Shatner. Brilliant.

    Thanks for letting us look into your heart.

    A wonderful invention video poetry!

    Morgan was just pulled from thin air, but seems to have touched many. The words speak when all else cannot. I like to create new forms too. I didn’t know that haibun was limited to just one haiku – If I did I would have probably broken the rules any way…
