Ars Poetica: Poetry At Play

Poetry At Play

Play
Playing
Playing with words
Word play

Rhyme
Rhyming
Rhythm with
Schism and ism

Play
Playing
With beat
iambs and feet
To make line

Form
Forming
Or following
Syllabic plans
Or free stanz-
as

Play
Playing with nouns
Strong, specific nouns
To paint pictures
And bring them to life
with

Action
Acting verbs
Pushing readers
Off balance
Shocking them to emotion
and through relation
to revelation

 

I wrote this in response to the Meet the Bar prompt at dVerse Poets Pub

  1. Oh – I get an image in my mind of this poem written as a frame around your wonderful graphic. Your words feel like my days – they are the heartbeat rhythm that we all feel as the words have their way with us. Thank you so much for sharing this!
