I must admit to laughing smiles, though I didn't know the form, Shane. Ha, again I chuckle as I reread... You've 'captured' the form marvelously!

A slick frog you are...

Ha, you think? I don't mind fermentation, but, ugh, goat's milk? It seems to me people of that day and age had more open minds, you know? Totally off the wall ideas were actually debated, and not labeled with the religious intolerance of now. Thank you for the laugh, seems I don't see much to laugh ...

Perhaps, Eternum, Isis 'lent' Osiris her female replicated male organ, but, only for a short time, Time enough to establish an inseminatiion ability, to a certain degree.

I'm sure Isis demanded it back, post haste, once this matter was accomplished. I would have...

A tricky question, Heinzs, with risky answers or opinions. I don't mind a 'hue' of, say, Shakepeare or Poe in my poems, in what I write, but, I cannot seem to turn myself over to someone else's vernaculared, environmentaled, spatial placement in their time to where I could write so as to be 'style-t...

Thank you, Eternum, I enjoyed your discourse, not many are willing to see, much less talk about, the female role in history. I think there is more than meets the 'outer eye' in our course on this earth, one of many. I went to Catholic Elementary School for the first six years of my life. I could not...

:cheers: Thank you, gentlemen. :bow: Ha!

I created a diatr...

:shock: Holy Guacamole! ... A beauty of a piece, a 'remembrance', a knowledge and an epiphany, perhaps to others, if they can hear what you speak, Sublime Poet. You've captured and coaxed and couched a truth of Man, a reality of All, our Future, Eternum. It thrilled through me as I read, because, in...

'Time Tales' Sonnets

I love the sonnet form, it is useful in telling a 'story' without being a 'book'. I guess I'll change the title, and post the other sonnets in this string, as well. I took Genesis, which I read twice yesterday morning to feed my thoughts, the Bible and History (as opposed to Herstory) and gave it a ...

You were right, Gerry, the pantoum did begin in Malaysa. :cool: But, the French can be given credit for adopting and spreading the form.

According to Richard, Gerry, it's A French verse form of four quatrains that repeats Entire lines in a strict pattern 1234, 2546, 5767, 7183. Don't you have single pantoum? You should try one, if not, they can be metered and balanced with remarkable results. What about a vilanelle, Gerry, have one? ...

:cool: I like it, Gerry!! Semi-unformatted. It works! It was like the flutist playing his tune in a musically hypnotizing way to the snake, slowly announcing dawn and lulling/pushing it to its peak mid-piece, then sink-spiraling back into its darkened basket, in the end, to sleep/die alone... Very m...

You know what, Heinzs? I think it is because you have too many hard-soft contrasts in almost every line, without the continuity of sound-alliteration to keep the flow smooth and moving. If you see what I mean. Take the first verse, if I may use it to show what I 'feel': When the Monarch butterflies ...

Thank you, both, it is a very satisfying form. I'd love to see a pantoum from each of you. I'm wondering, I was reading back on a few other people's pantoums in several strings. They are more asymmetrical, to my ear, though comprised of strong context. Which do you feel is better for the form, rythm...

A Pantoum

No One Agrees So All Must Die I think I see where the problem lies, No one agrees so all must die, Too many sheep bleating their ayes, Caring's too hard so nobody tries. No one agrees so all must die, Selling their dreams and blinding their eyes, Caring’s too hard so nobody tries, Plugging their ear...

I believe I will try this form, next, it produces, with repeated emphasis, an imparting of 'learning', not only in the form and rhyme scheme, but with Dylan's accent on the wise and the wild equaling his father, and, in perpetuity, all Man, in not realizing how sweet life really is in blindness of t...
