NaPoWriMo–Day 20--“I Know” poem–a poem that states the things you know.
A Landay is “a form of folk poetry from Afghanistan. Meant to be recited or sung aloud, and frequently anonymous, the form is a couplet comprised of 22 syllables. The first line has 9 syllables and the second line 13 syllables. Landays end on “ma” or “na” sounds and treat themes such as love, grief, homeland, war, and separation.”
This was a fun challenge!
For me, it consisted of going through my Facebook and Twitter feeds
and creating a rhyme from some of the things I saw posted. 🙂
