fetched opens heals
leashed old memories
paws popcorn pats
pressed into palm
love melts pain
wholeness renewed held
tenderness — forever’s kiss.
Submitted as part of “National/Global Poetry Writing Month” (#NaPoWriMo #GloPoWriMo).
Today’s prompt: Day Ten: …. is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku). Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words. You can write just one, or chain several together into a longer poem.write a “concrete” poem – a poem in which the lines and words are organized to take a shape that reflects in some way the theme of the poem.
