Day 2: NaPoMo


Weather Forecast


A Creek

Lush pasture

Blue sky and sun

Cumulus piles, black and ominous

Hours later, in the dark of the night

Lightning flashes

Torrents fall



That’s something called a double tetractys.  Tip o’ the hat to The Ranting Papizilla for the leading the way on this.  For those who don’t know a tetractys is a poem that follows the following format of syllables in each line:  1,2,3,4,10.  A double tetractys is that and then the reverse:  1,2,3,4,10,10,4,3,2,1.

    Nice! Wish all forecasts were as poetic. That looks like somewhere in Oz. Who’d have thunk!

    Nicely done. Sounds like a lovely Spring day, doesn’t it?

    Hey look at you! Stretching your writing muscles in an entirely new way! Good for you!

      Ssshh… I’ve never believed in stretching before exercise. But, wait, the few times I try this thing called poetry it changes my fiction writing for the better. I think. Maybe there’s something to be said for stretching.
      Thank you, by the way.
