Writing 201: Poetry
Day 9: Cold, Concrete Poem,Anaphora/Epistrophe
Today’s form : Concrete Poetry
Today’s device: Anaphora/Epistrophe
my mind begins
to wonder, are we
expecting to see large
snowflakes today?My mind
says:not just yet,be ready
with your shovels and ice pick
after snow it might rain and make
the surface slippery and icy,it really
becomes so bad only your skates will help.
when the snow will show up.
It will cover the car, the walkway
the outside porch and driveway and the tree
O God, help me I will say
O God, You are the one who
can save me,from the cold ice and snow
From today I will begin to Pray,
So the snow is not heavy, I will Pray,
Do you think it will help if I Pray?
So that the winter does not last long!
I caught your Anaphora and Epistrophe: Oh God & to pray ;). I do not want to put you on the spot or make you feel bad but I am trying to figure out your shape. Is it a tree? (you are creative, you took your time using the formatting tools in word yet you say you are not).
Yes I meant for it to be a tree,a very simple kind, anything fancy is out of my league, sorry. Thank you for visiting and commenting. 🙂
Well you achieve your tree, so you did good.
Yes, it’s the first time I tried something so different.Thank you. 🙂
This is a lovely poem. I totally see the tree and i like the form altogether. Its creative and thats the best kind! 🙂
Thank you, dear Megan. These comments helps to develop my confidence. 🙂
This is very nice. Thank you!
I like the words, their sound, their meaning, and even their shape :-).
All good wishes,
How many ways can I thank you, still it won’t be enough! 🙂
This shape reminds me of a little dwarf tree that I have seen before 🙂 Well done!
thank you ,Jacqueline. 🙂
Wonderful Ranu! I love how you are trying out different styles so beautifully.
Thank you Sonya, I love your comment! 🙂
I think you made the shape well. I could easily see it was a tree (maybe sitting on a pile of snow?). Well, why not pray? God could withhold the cold or provide the means to deal with it. Lively, engaging words. Thank you!
Thank you so much for your awesome comment, clcouch. 🙂
Amazing. You are so good in everything.
Dear Indira , thank you, you are a good friend, this is why you think
My dearest sister,

I hope so, my dearest brother. 🙂
