Being a Dad

Heartache
                only
                 true love
knows
family
ties
            as it grows
sometimes..
oftimes
we lack
             wisdom
             to know
when to
step
back
         when to
         to row
when to  
say no
          when to
            let
go..
            go
            with the
flow

    Brian. Is there another name for this type of poem where it is broken in the middle and can be read down each side? I think it is so unique and inventive. Thanks for the placement in your contest. Not an easy list for me as I have not yet placed before. Honored, really! Thanks for appreciating my Hallowed Leaf. Best to u, gwendolen

    This is my open form variation inspired by the style of WCW and Marianne Moore,using the 'breath length' approach(see note alongside my blogs for links in regard thereto)Best wishes with your poetic endeavours and thank for supporting my contests.Rgds Brian
