My 1st Sparrowlet
South of Ukraine... not by Russia... Stuck in Moldova... Gosh, such a frustrating and unforeseen pain that my wife is there and thus - a traveler stranded with no plane... Not by Russia... South of Ukraine...
d’Verse prompt: The Sparrowlet
At d’Verse, poets were prompted to try their hands at constructing sparrowlets:
- meter: iambic tetrameter;
- a sestet – a poem with 6 lines;
- the first ½ and the second ½ of line 1 make up a refrain, which is switched in the final line;
- rhyme scheme:
- XXXA XXXB
- XXXB XXXA
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)
