Because You Asked about the Line Between Prose and Poetry by Howard Nemerov [poetry]
You have to respect the rhythm with this one. Don’t let it get away. Read. With care. Trust me, it will be worth it.
Because You Asked about the Line Between Prose and Poetry
by Howard Nemerov
Sparrows were feeding in a freezing drizzle
That while you watched turned to pieces of snow
Riding a gradient invisible
From silver aslant to random, white, and slow.
There came a moment that you couldn’t tell.
And then they clearly flew instead of fell.
