I decided to practice poetic forms (for form’s sake). These two poems are examples of two different poem forms:
The Fib – http://www.poetryfoundation.org/features/articles/detail/68971
The Lai – http://thepoetsgarret.com/2008Challenge/form14.html
Let’s just say I’m starting easy and working my way up to the “Big Boy” forms (gender-non-specifically-speaking). My efforts don’t represent the apex of these forms; I’m just posting my finger exercises for the fun of it.
Fib – A Fib poem
lie. Don’t remember
Why. Perhaps I made my mom cry.
Lie – A Lai poem
I told a white lie.
Made my mother cry.
A tear filled her eye.
She never said, “Bye”
And I. Saw her fly.
Doesn’t live nearby.
