#frapalymo Poetry Prompt 23Nov16 – Green Pantoum

the #frapalymo prompt no 23 is: “write a green pantoum” . you have to engage a little with the pantoum. if you do that you’ll get a wonderful aha moment. you can find more about the pantoum and how it works here on wikipedia. I want to add that a pantoum does not need to rhyme but it can be, but there are rhyme artists amongst us and so I am looking forward to rhymed and unrhymed pantoums.

Green Pantoum

In the beginning, God created heaven and earth
The earth was green
Trees were free from weeds
The grass was rich and clean

The earth was green
Water pure hygiene
The grass was rich and clean
Valleys didn’t need a fire screen

Water pure hygiene
Which gleamed
The grass was rich and clean
Everything a method of routine

Which gleamed
Showing the earth was green
Everything a method of routine
Producing the earth’s hygiene

Showing the earth was green
Trees were free of weeds
Producing the earth’s hygiene
In the beginning, God created heaven and earth

This is my first attempt at writing a rhyming Pantoum, so it was a challenge, but I’m quite happy with the end result.

Thanks Bee for making me go past my comfort zone.
