Playing with poetry 2


Howling metal beast
Gliding on treacherous roads
Medicine of wind

I'm no poet, ("No shit!" I hear you saying) but it's a giggle to muck around with form, playing with words and ideas within the rigid constraints of certain poetic forms - just for the heck of it. I like the tight rules of sonnets and haiku.

Mine may be execrable poetry, (speaking in terms of artistic merit) but good mental gymnastics! Hmm, what next? Stay tuned for a motorcycle limerick, tee hee!

Yeah - not giving up my day job anytime soon *sigh*, and I should probably get out more...
