"And so for today’s poetry prompt it’s all about couples, twos, in other words couplets!"
1. The Cote – a poem of uneven couplets attributed to John Schroeder. L1 being a single imperative verb, L2 is a glossing or expansion of L1. Rhyme and meter is of your own choosing. More info here

Sweet dreams of fancy
Each person allowed their own view
Your eyes hypnotize me
I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York.
My goal is to create and share poetry with others
who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve
in you, and feel your sparks as well.

Lush words, emotions ~~ an elegant simplicity, Sara. I tried, honestly I did, to come up with something .. my little brain just wouldn’t work. (my heart is heavy for you after reading the comment you left on my Lullaby poem.)
Thanks so much, Helen. 💜💜
I too love your last couplet, Sara! 💙
Nice one Sara
