Prompt No. 4:  Animal;   Form:  Concrete Poetry;   Device: Enjambment
for   Writing 201:   Poetry!
Blogging University Presented by
The Daily Post
on WordPress.com

at last!  a day when i  followed the prompt,  the form and the device!  although i  did stray to  “visual”  concrete poetry form { or poésie concrète in French,  i love the way that sounds }  rather than  “shape” ~ this happens to be my favorite poetry form plus i love the use of  enjambments.  i enjoy the form so much that it never matters to me if  what i write is any good or not.  {smile}  thank you,  Ben,  for such an exciting day of  writing!

this is my submission to  ~

Poetry Pantry #240    at    Poets United
submit a new or old poem

thank you,  Mary

  1. breakdownchick

    Very cool&unique

  2. loved it. the way you use the shape, size, gaps, gives the words visual power. i love the way you play with words (misunderstood) – brilliant

  3. Ha, Dani, you definitely used color and shapes to your advantage. There are some people who never are at fault…so very true. (At least that is THEIR opinion. Smiles.) Good to see you at Poets United!

  4. ha. nice change of font and size to really get this going…
    my how we tend to get our god clothes on…thinking ourselves all powerful and never at fault, at times…smiles.

  5. I, too, enjoyed the way you played with color and font to accentuate the message. Yes, this sounds like the type of person who never makes a mistake, for sure. Smiles.

  6. ZQ

    Well… that was different and very interesting :-)

  7. you’ve caught the beast by its neck…oh oh …simply brilliant…

  8. I love how you did this, turning the concrete form into a rant of non-acceptance. The us of different sizes and colors made this really good, and for sure how difficult it may be to put the blame on yourself,

  9. The complexities of an inner dialogue look and feel how you have bravely done here

i'd love to hear from you ♥ thanks! {comments must be approved before they are visible}
