Superstitious

~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~



















This
weather
is too nice -
which leads me to
suspect some wintry
horror lurking round the
bend: some blizzardry of ice
to darken March and April; some
misery of damp through May and June.
Why can't I just enjoy the sun today?

For Lolly, on whose poetry blog I first encountered this verse form

  1. That weather is certainly tricksy this year! :)

  2. My first thought, before I even read the words, was wow, she made half a tree! Then to find out it's a form of verse... I feel like I've gone back to school!!!

    I'm so glad you tried this. You did well. And now you've got my brains spinning; I want to try it too. But I have a difficult time with NOT rhyming. So I'm thinking the twin might be the challenge for me. :)

  6. I
    love this
    very much.
    Seriously,
    consider making
    a sister blog or page
    to store your poetic works
    I would definitely visit
    such a site quite regularly
    and so would so many other people.
