IN-FORM POETS WEDNESDAY – DIALOGUE DIZAIN
Walt has developed a “new” verse form with which to experiment. It follows the basic format of the Dizain, (ten lines rhymed: a b a b b c c d c d). The body of the poem is a dialogue between two people on the subject of the poem.
MARIE ELENA’S DIALOGUE DIZAIN:
LISTENIt’s me again, and things look bleak. I just can’t cope. I’m deeply stressed. My child, can you hear me speak? I’m sad, alone, and so depressed. Can You not hear my grave request? My precious one, I’m always near. I’ve got your back – release your fear. Can You not hear me when I pray? My prayers are urgent and sincere! You’re mine. I cherish what you say. “Be still, and know that I am God.” ~ Psalm 46:10 © Copyright Marie Elena Good – 2013
WALT’S DIALOGUE DIZAIN:
“Do you know the way to San Jose?”
“That is a good question that you ask!”
“I’ve been driving all night, but I’ve lost my way!”
“It surely seems a daunting task.”
“Thank God, I brought a full hip flask.
“Maybe I could ride with you?”
“The company might be good, that’s true!”
“I could talk while you would drive”
“And I’d stay awake the whole way through!”
“A darn good way to stay alive!”
