Notes

  • I decided to once again employ the ‘Geek Set’ of magnets for this poem;
    • Last week, I was surprised by how difficult the use of this set was for me;
    • This week, I knew what I was getting myself into, but constructing a geeky poem still remained a challenge for me;
  • I once again opted for a tanka, rather than a haiku, because I have been enjoying this extra level of complexity;
    • Tanka traditionally have a ‘turn’ in the 3rd line; and, in this poem, I actually managed to cobble together a ‘turn’ that worked;
  • The featured image was selected after I’d written the poem ๐Ÿ‰;
  • The colors I assigned to the tanka’s text are those of a flame;
    • Blue at the base of the flame; a small dark orange-brown section above that; and above that the large yellow region.
