With the approaching publication of HWA’s Poetry Showcase Volume 6, containing my poem Stringed Pearls, I have been slowly getting back into writing in this form and even allowed it to filter into my real life job with the setting up of a small poetry group for students in the library after school. The writing these teens have created is amazing and seriously challenged me to equal theirs. I love that in each generation, there will always be people who love words enough to play with them and create new works of art.
One form I played with a while ago, and something I’d like to return to are Wordblock poems which allow you to play with words and their actual shape. Below are wordblock poems, Air and Fire. (Now I need to work out some that are a bit darker in appearance!)
If you want to see more of my poems, you can find them in my collection, Dark is my Playground, available on amazon. Gone (below), a found poem based on HTTP status codes is included.
