A Lantern Poem – So called as when done it should assume the shape of a lantern with a syllable count as follows
1-2-3-4-1

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines further describe the 1st and the last one is a synonym to the first.

Echoes of My Neighborhood

This week my neighborhood is more suburban than urban. I am in the mountains breathing good air, and getting good sleep.

              last night the rains came
nature’s lullaby
dreams danced in childhood

image

                Twin maples, now bare

image

The smallest of the forsythia bushes, such curves.

image

Something was slittering through the crunchy ice

image

Remnants of fall long gone

image

That picnic table is doomed after many harsh winters

image

Old mini cabin holding secrets of tiny creatures

image

Crunchy snow and ice along upper edges of the creek

image

The winter sun was starting to set the light on the water was captivating.

I am trying a new form of poetry called the Lantern poem. So called as when done it should assume the shape of a lantern with a syllable count as follows
1-2-3-4-1

The 2nd, 3rd, and 4th lines further describe the 1st and the last one is a synonym to the first…..pretty cool!!

rain
heavy
all last night
lulls on tin roof

“I hold a beast, an angel and a madman in me an enquiry as to their working and my problem is their subjugation and victory, down throw and upheaval and my efforts their self – expression.”

Dylan Thomas

Sounds like he’s been on my insides.

………………………………………………………………..

Be yourself. Above all, let who you are, what you are, what you believe shine through every sentence you write, every piece you finish.

John Jakes

I need to listen to this one myself. I am forever editing what comes out of me..to fit what – I don’t know

………………………………………………………………..

How vain it is to sit down to write when you have not stood up to live.

Henry David Thoreau

For some reason the person that came to mind when I read this was Hemingway.

These are my contributions for this week.
