The skill, or: The thrill

My 1st monotetra

Poetry need not rhyme, but still
It seems pairing syllables will
Challenge my mind and whet my skill,
Therein's the thrill; therein's the thrill!

  1. What a fun form! Iโ€™ll have to try it, too.
    Thanks, David, for being such a faithful reader and cheering me on from across the sea!
    Best wishes! Anna ๐Ÿ˜Š

  2. I canโ€™t imagine what it is like to live each day with rockets falling from the sky. I guess you have to block it out, or else you shelter in place, and have no quality of life. I pray for the peace of Jerusalem, actually for the whole land of Israel.

    1. Thanks, Michael. It’s not all the time – we only heard rockets exploding two nights ago – since then, everything has been quiet in our location.


  3. I’m partial to the monorhyme and this form highlights it beautifully! Also the content is truth – a good syllabic poetry form to challenge the brain is a good mental exercise!

    1. I think I’ll use this form again for a longer poem with more stanzas – this one was primarily an exercise, Muri ๐Ÿ˜€
