In the collaboration two poets (say: Poet A and Poet B) collaborates in a poem.
Poet A writes 9-12 line poem, but sends only the title to B. Then B writes 9-12 line poem inspired by the title. After that Poet B weaves all 18-24 lines into one poem keeping the central idea and original flavour of the poem. Poet A offers edit and the two poets exchange drafts until both are satisfied.
Here, I with my sister @diabolic_sugar (Minakshi) came up with a Tapestry #collaboration on the Title "I Lost Myself In The Night Sky". Hope you guys will love and support our efforts. °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° I Lost Myself In The Night Sky. ( By Poet A - @the_alchemiist ) °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° When the ocean turned purple, and the sky began to cry. The red sky left me stained; hiding my true colours. Soaking me with it's odour, washing away my fragrance. That the reflection in the ocean, showed a stranger in me. I lost myself in the nightsky, becoming a spectator of my life. And found a stranger in the sunrise, blinding me with it's shine...!!
°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° I Lost Myself In The Night Sky ( By Poet B - @diabolic_sugar ) °°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°°° When the day turned into night, all was dark and quiet. The scarlet sky depicted it's true colours. I heard strange cries and pleading voice. The menacing sky left me with fear sending shudders down my spine. The unpleasant face and red mark, made me loose myself into the quandary of light and dark. The silver ripples of water Showed my reflection oversea. I realised, the strange cries which I heard, were advancing from within me...!!
••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I Lost Myself In The Night Sky ( Tapestry by - the_alchemiist and diabolic_sugar) ••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••• I was lost into the quandary of light and dark. Hiding my true colours, the scarlet sky left me stained. The ocean washed away my fragrance, and I was soaked with it's odour.
The ocean turned dark, purple and quiet. For now, the day had turned into night. The menacing sky now began to cry, sending shudders down my spine. Again; I heard a pleading voice and- a strange cry.
The silver ripples in ocean were still. In it's reflection, it showed a stranger in me. I began to realise the strange cries, Oh! It was from within me.
Blinded with the shine in sunrise, I found a stranger in me. I became spectator of a new bright sky, For I had lost myself in the night sky...!!
