Thoughts

I'm glad you like this.

>>I do like the moment of "Oh. Well, then." that happens there.<<

It takes a strong person to concede gracefully.

>>The poetic form is growing on me, too.<<

Haiku has evolved over its long history. The use of it as a verse form in longer poems has been around for a while, but has gained popularity with time.

Re: Thoughts

I'd not seen it that way before I started reading your work, but I like the way it flows.

I'm, in general, a fan of poetic forms, and I like how you use them.

Yay!

*grin* I am such a forms maven. I collect the things. I love playing with forms. I've invented at least two new ones for the Torn World project alone.

And that is just the coolest thing ever.

"Lament for an Unlicensed Child" is a rotary:

I made up the tile poem for a story that I just submitted; that will appear in "One-Tick Literature."

I am forever fooling around with forms. I've lost count of how many I have devised over the years.

Re: Thoughts

Neat form and yet a creepy poem.

Do you have your forms listed/explained anywhere?

Re: Thoughts

Um ... not like in a list, no. Some of them are written out in descriptive files, individually. I've never sat down and tried to collate them.

Re: Thoughts

/nods/ reasonable, collating things is often more work than just writing them! I was just curious.

Re: Thoughts

It is something I should probably do, one of these days. I'm sure it would be useful, and if I shared it, people would probably enjoy it.

Re: Thoughts

*grins* I'd treat it as a challenge! :-D

Re: Thoughts

Yeah, it's just a matter of finding time for it, among the jillion other things I have to do. I only got around to listing the serial poetry when someone donated to a complete series, and I realized they hadn't even found all the poems in it.

Re: Thoughts

/nods/ I need to do something similar for the ever-growing list of settings that come out of prompted fiction for me.

Re: Thoughts

I would enjoy seeing that too.

True, in fact the original 'hokku' that later evolved into the relatively modern 'haiku'was the opening part of a 'tanka'
(a 5-7-5-7-7 form). Tanka were often written in collaborative 'chains' called 'renga' and the opening hokku was assigned to the 'master of ceremonies, the best poet of the group. The hokku was later taken out and developed as an original form.

Re: Thoughts

Yeah, I've done one or two of the Origami Mage poems with tanka verses. Those take amazingly longer.
