( Written for W3 Prompt #83: Wea’ve Written Weekly )
Unheard either before.
Said – unsaid
Meaning taken lovingly.
Despite stern restraints.
Soft heart’s resistivity.
It could start.
Never to subside.
Stronger than ever.
Culmination of poetry.
Good evening and till later…
Written for W3 Prompt #83: Wea’ve Written Weekly
Welcome to our W3 Poetry Prompt, which goes live on Wednesdays at The Skeptic’s Kaddish.
You may click here for a fuller explanation of W3; but here’s the ‘tldr’ version:
The main ingredient of W3 is a weekly poem written by a Poet of the Week (PoW), which participants read before participating in the prompt.
The second ingredient is a writing guideline (or two) provided by the PoW. Guidelines may include, but are not limited to: word counts, poetic forms, inclusion of specific words, and use of particular poetic devices.
After five days, when the prompt closes, the PoW shall select one participant’s poem as the W3 prompt for the following week, and its author becomes the next PoW.
Simple enough, right?
Mich’s prompt guidelines
Write a multiple/chained hay(na)ku on the theme of “love lost and found”.
- Three lines;
- L1: one word;
- L2: two words;
- L3: three words;
There are some variations of this new poetic form. For instance, a reverse hay(na)ku has lines of three, two, and one words for L1, L2, and L3 respectively. Also, multiple hay(na)ku can be chained together to form longer poems.
III. Submit: Click on ‘Mister Linky’ below
In order to participate and share a poem, open up this blog post, outside of the WordPress reader. At the bottom, just below these words, you will see a small rectangular graphic with the words ‘Mr Linky’. Click on that to submit.
