Mirror, mirror on the wall...
Here is a quick challenge for anyone who feels like a mild form of poetic brain-teaser on Sunday afternoon.
A Mirror Oddquain
A two stanza form with syllable sequence 1-3-5-7-1 1-7-5-3-1 = 32 syllables, with some kind of opposition between the two parts.
Here is a very quick example:
Sun glides over skin
Of rock, gossamer and gold
Moon makes of water a cloak
And wraps it around
As with all Real Toads prompts the link will remain open, if you would like to add something later in the week.
O my gosh...you gals got me to use form! I'm expecting a rain of toads next...
Haha! At least it's not a haiku...
I actually have a scribble that has been waiting to meet this form--I'll post it in a sec. Very cool, Kerry.
oh this is right up my alley. if only my brain could do anything but sleep.
i'll come back later.
I may try this one before going to bed. I'm gathering words. <3
This got me firing on all cylinders! Thank you so much!
Better late than never, right?
I don't remember how to respond to a challenge on here. Do I post it as a comment here, or do I give a link for where to find it on my blog?
oh i am behind, on to the next!
lillian, use the linky tool--your name goes in the top box and the link to your poem in the bottom box.
Lillian--thanks for your kind comment at my place. I am unable to view your blog, unfortunately. I'm taken to an error screen that says my "ID" is not valid, so I can't return the courtesy. Sorry.
