Sparkles and Razzles

Like bright sun bursting,
sprinkling its golden rays.

Like tamed angry fire
burning only little flames.

Like wildflower
blossoming freely in spring.

Like hummingbirds
sipping flowers’ sweet strings.

I stood dazzled.
In the middle of a whole new world
of sparkles, razzles, singing birds and blooming flowers,
inside your shining, heart-melting eyes.

In response to dVerse‘s Razzle Dazzle Me! by loving lillian who wrote a lovely sparkling poem here.


So for today’s Poetics, I’m asking you to kick up your heels a bit with me! Give me the ole razzle dazzle! Sparkle me with a mood by following these steps:

  1. Absorb the definitions of these words: Razzle: showiness that astonishes; Dazzle: amaze, brightness, brilliance, glare;  Sparkle:effervescence, excel, shine, vivacity, energy, oomph, gusto.
  1. Now write about something or someone or someplace or some experience that portrays the mood of the words. Use the words, one of them, or none of them. But do evoke their mood. Razzle dazzle me!
