October Poetry Writing Month #OctPoWriMo!

Theme for 2018 is a one lined quote that gives me inspiration for writing a  Poem – These quotes are copied from Goodreads.com – tag poetry.

“Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash.” ― Leonard Cohen

Dreaming about Poetry

Dreams are remnants of a busy life
Always dreaming, never remembering
Just reminds me of things I have forgotten
throughout the day, the pressures of daily living

My life is not burning very well
Poetry gives the evidence, however,
I don’t believe it’s ash, it would blow away
as poets say, poetry lives with us forever

The Tango is an invented stanzaic form introduced by Chiquita LoJuana Gonzolas Sills. The elements of the Tango are:

  1. stanzaic, written in any number of quatrains.
  2. syllabic, 9-10-11-12 syllables per line.
  3. rhymed, xaxa xbxb etc. x being unrhymed.
