Waxing Poetically with Jules

From Jules:

Waxing Poetically started in a comment section (here) with my friend Chelsea Owens and I thought I’d create a page for the ‘script’ and ‘dribble’ that we are ‘waning’…

Jules mentioned how she wanted to use “waxing poetically” in a poem. What a great line, I thought, and supplied one in the comments.

The candle burns
It pools; it waxes

Like any great friend and writer, Jules answered.

Waves as it pools…
melted by its lit wick
the drunkard sleeps
as his drool reflects…

I responded again; then she did. And on. Not only that, but Jules created a page just for our poem. Click here to read it in its entirety.

    I like that poem! And that friend. I had a friend once that I would write witty things back and forth with. It was the best. Great poem!
