Zorlone and I collaborated on a poem together where we did an email exchange each writing a line of the poem and continuing to take turns until the poem was finished. This poem came out as the result of our first poetry collaboration, and I think it turned out nicely.
See if you can guess which lines were written by Dragonblogger and which were written by Zorlone.
At The Break of Dawn
Dark skies mirror the shadows in my soul
but moonbeams penetrate sanity into my heart
A war of worlds beats within my chest
like hummingbirds in a springtime of sweethearts.
As the bitter cold bites my skin, I know now what I must do
seek comfort in the warmth of a long forsaken memory
Return from banishment and claim the priests daughter
for I shall never be exiled with the curse of Catullus and Propertius elegies.
I made haste, preparing for a destiny forged by my own hands
this castle of serenity, soon to become an icon of my tortured past
At dawn, I faced my foes and fears at once
breaking each spell, this sorcerer’s force came but was squashed.
When at last her heart and hand were won
These darkened skies succinctly rested and its pieces – torn.
