Poetry Partners #7

A micropoem by Cheyenne MacMasters of ‘Cheyenne Paints’

Limited time
Expands force
Engaging purpose

A nonet by ben Alexander of ‘The Skeptic’s Kaddish’


The enemy of art is the absence of limitations.

Orson Welles (1915-85)
Syllables; metaphor; enjambment;
meter; onomatopoeia;
alliteration; rhythm;
consonance; assonance; 
stanzas; lines; letters.

of and on


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

  1. 99 poetry partners made me think of “99 Red Balloons” Do you remember that song? I came to visit from Cheyenne’s blog. I don’t know why I never made it over from JYP’s blog. I love the nonet. Cool initiative.

      1. Are not all things poetic little more than fleeting moments pushing the boundaries, challenging our acumen, while creating tiny ripples in the fabric of space and time?
