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. 🙂
Thankful for today’s challenge which offered me the opportunity to write my first Terzanelle!
NaPoWriMo–Day 15--write a poem that addresses itself or some aspect of its self
I enjoyed this challenge of writing my first Metaphor poem, for I liked the memory it brought.
The poem is actually about me. When I was a little girl. I used to sit in a big comfy chair (actually mine was red at that time, but later in life I did actually have a big pink wing-backed chair.)
I would sit for hours in the living room and read, and dream of faraway places, and imagine I was on a flying carpet! Books really can take you places! 🙂 Fun memory!
