Whispers within the smoke,
drops of harmony,
that gentle patter of city lights.
Footsteps part the silence
our cheeks bed beneath a galaxy of memories
we topple toward sleep.
Tomorrow's rings smote the surfaceand so finally another spiral meets.

'He who binds to himself a joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the joy as it flies
Lives in eternity's sunrise.'
(William Blake, 1757-1827)

“Concrete poetry or Size poetry is poetry in which the typographical arrangement of words is as important in conveying the intended effect as the conventional elements of the poem, such as meaning of words, rhythm, rhyme and so on.
It is sometimes referred to as visual poetry, a term that has evolved to have distinct meaning of its own, but which shares the distinction of being poetry in which the visual elements are as important as the text.” ~ Wikipedia entry
