Marc Latham’s latest Folding Mirror poem was inspired by noticing lies and isle are an anagram, and thinking they fitted into the FM form, as islands stick out above the ocean surface.
Mirror Poem Anagram Metaphor
He then put the poem together to fit in with that idea. The poem is from a lifetime of experience rather than anything recent. Human communication is as constant and unpredictable as the ocean waves.
Since writing the above, Marc decided to add another couple of anagrams from, in alphabetical order, the letters e-i- l-s, that sound like negative words, which was something he thought about, and also fitted in with adding a couple of words at the bottom to finish off the mirror falling-sinking form nicely.
Anagram Ocean Inspiration, Navigating Uncharted Metaphor
lies are not an isle
jutting up jealously
high above surface
stormy poisoned seas, dragging sailors down
tattered tugboats try
seeing out storm
truth usually sails against wind
