To challenge myself further, in addition to the theme of “shadow” and the 44 word limit, I have constructed a 5 line poem of exactly 11 syllables per line.
For an interesting post/challenge regarding a poetic form entitled a Quadrille, please visit dVerse ~ Poets Pub .
One word, which this week is: shadow, becomes the theme for the poem, which must be written using exactly, not more or less, 44 words (not counting the title), but inclusive of the theme word “shadow”.
Here’s how to Quadrille:
– Write a poem of exactly 44 words, including the word shadow.
– Put your poem on your blog and link back to this post.
– Link it up to our Mr. Linky.
– Visit other blogs. Enjoy some amazing poets. Comment. Come back later this week and write another one, and visit some more. Comment some more. Cast as many poem shadows as you please.
A Shadowy Insight
Shadows come and go, we see, with passing day
and night. Their dark forms come alive at dawn, and
wither without light. It is the strangest thing,
it seems, to be, then not to be, in sight. So
enlightened in daylight; impolite at night.
