INFORM POETS – CRYSTALLINE

I’m giving you a break and offering an easy form this week.

A CRYSTALLINE is a two line image poem, often with a title, in which euphony is the key factor. The lines will have 8 or 9 syllables to make a total of seventeen.

Write as many as you’d like, or string some together to make for a longer poem. The choice is yours!

SARA’S CRYSTALLINE:

PUFFS OF PERFUME

Rich rose perfume of last bold blooms

scents sidewalks, smiles of passers by

STRUMMING OF SITARS

sitar strings strum behind closed eyes

meditation mood set in stillness

WALT’S CRYSTALLINE:

MIST IN THE NIGHT

The surf is soft, serene. Here I dream,

us in the moonlight making steam!
