A New Day Comes and Goes

The stars of night all gone, a new day breaks,
the sky rather cloudy as the wind rose
a field of green wet grass sparkles and glows,
then rain coming from the south overtakes.
Ice cold striking moisture with hail outbreaks.
Enjoy the chills today it rarely snows,
take care driving, there is ice on the road.
It’s fine this evening, looking at the sky,
you can reflect on the stars floating by.

Analogue  is a metered invented form that is limited to 3 rhymes. It’s source is Rena Ferguson Parks a 20th century poet and educator.

  • a poem of 9 lines.
  • metered, all lines are iambic pentameter.
  • rhymed, rhyme scheme abbaabbcc.

This has been a very hard poem to write, I don’t guarantee it is right, so feel free to advise me, as it is the first one of this form, I have written.

What is a iambic pentameter? – a line of verse with five metrical feet, each consisting of one short (or unstressed) syllable followed by one long (or stressed) syllable, for example Two households, both alike in dignity.

Lynx labeled large
left leg landing listlessly
lacerated, lame

Authors Note: The photo above is an Eurasian lynx, of the four lynx species it is the largest in size, it is also the third largest predator in Europe, so that’s where I got  the first line of the Haiku from Wikipedia.

  • Every word in the haiku must begin with the same letter.
  • When written in English, it generally follows the syllabic pattern 5-7-5
  • Haiku/Senryu Poetry – Here is an in-depth description of Haiku/Senryu Poem (also called human haiku) is an unrhymed Japanese verse consisting of three unrhymed lines of five, seven, and five syllables (5, 7, 5) or 17 syllables in all. Senryu is usually written in the present tense and only references to some aspect of human nature or emotions.

World Suicide Prevention Day was observed on 10 September 2018, the reason for this poem.

Double Etheree Poem – Emotions and Healing

Life
Sadness,
bitterness
confusion kills.
Don’t save emotions.
Channel them all out now
never ignore your feelings.
Understand why you feel like this
wounded heart will heal in the future,
never be ashamed to weep, that’s grieving
emotions heal when they are heard, so speak
concealing twisted emotions kill
or damage the mind forever.
Feeling good is everything,
sun’s shining. Let it shine,
give someone a hug,
opens your heart.
Listen, you
can hear
music.

Colorful

Colorful gardens delight the public
organised especially for a coming expo
lustre and beauty by the bucketful
outstanding bright flowers always do,
rich aroma floating all around the air
finally the true results a great spinoff
unreliable weather, can be against you
learn to accept nature and be grateful

Standard Acrostic is – Pick a word or sentence, Put it down the side and start each line with the first letter of the word, it does not require rhyme.

Shadow or Mirror Acrostic is – Choose your word or sentence and the idea here is that you have the same letter at the left side of the poem and at the right side and fill in the middle.

Example:
Feel the love on the shelf
Expel your anger into torture
E    e
T    t.

keen kind kakapo
keeping katydids knocking
king kauri, kudos

Authors NoteThe kakapo or night owl is a species of large, flightlessnocturnal, ground-dwelling parrot of New Zealand. It is critically endangered; as of April 2018, the total known adult population was 149, surviving kakapo are kept on three predator-free islands.

Katydids are a type of insect, found on branches of trees or bushes and are most active at night and sing in the evening, so this is where my haiku comes from the Kakapo are nocturnal, keeping the katydids from sleeping so they keep knocking (other words rubbing there forelegs together) singing to each other.

The King Kauri is a large tree growing in New Zealand where the kakapo could be living in the underground around them, nicely finishing the haiku (Kudos).

Hope you liked my story about the writing for this week Alphabet Haiku.

Crazy Day

Come on
are you
crazy
laughing now
when you
know I fell
breaking my leg
now you are
jubilant.

Amaranth is an invented verse form that was probably created as a teaching tool by Viola Gardner. It makes deliberate use of the 9 most common metric feet.

  • 9 lines strophe. It is a stand alone poem.
  • metric, the 9 most common metric feet are used in sequence.
    L1 Spondee SS
    L2 Iamb uS
    L3 Pyrrhic uu
    L4 Dactyl Suu
    L5 Trochee Su
    L6 Amphimacer SuS
    L7 Choriamb SuuS
    L8 Anapest uuS
    L9 Amphibrach uSu

For me this was a fun form of New poetry to write, I had to go back to school to understand what each line meant, hopefully I got there.

Anyone seeing a mistake please tell me as it’s the only way I’m going to learn about poetry writing.
