Poem: "Invention"

This poem came out of the January 7, 2020 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by a prompt from [personal profile] technoshaman. It has been sponsored by [personal profile] janetmiles. This poem belongs to the Steamsmith series. It directly follows "On the Head of a Pin," so read that first or this will make no sense.


"Invention"
-- a Spenserian word sonnet


Feel.
Make.
Steel.
Shake.

Break.
Repair.
Ache.
There.

Stare.
Rotor.
Care.
Motor.

Pin.
Win.

* * *

Notes:

A word sonnet condenses the 14-line sonnet form to just 14 words.

A Spenserian sonnet uses the rhyme pattern abab bcbc cdcd ee.
