You may notice in my series of paired Haiku and Senryu poems that they also contain a third, slightly hidden poem highlighted throughout the words of the two. If you haven’t noticed before, or haven’t seen my others, I would welcome feedback.
This has been a fun challenge to keep the lines sensical while still being able to flow with context of a third poem.
May the holidays bring you peace, thank you very much for reading my prattles and oddities.
I was born without wings to fly Cursed with longing towards our sky Afraid I’m stuck down here forever Tasked with plucking up fallen feathers To bandage knees from failed attempts Sanguine ploys of returning to air again My enamored lust is to be more like you If only God had given me wings too
I’m using synonyms for anchor (moored and related word dock) and crawl (linger and related word amble).
This is my first crack at the Nonet poetry style, a syllabic form that consists of a descending count of 9-8-7-6-5-4-3-2-1. I also mixed in an acrostic (or puzzle), where my poem’s beginning letter of each line spells out a word.
