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.
