Mondo 1

this world of wonder
why do we only notice
the darkness therein?

we seek the vague
and thrive in it's presence,
the light shows us our true selves



NOTE: I know, I know... yet another Japanese form of poetry. This I believe is the most unheard of. Basically the first three lines asks a question and the second three-line set answers. To keep true to rules the first stanza is supposed to be written by one poet while the answer is supposed to be written by another. But I don't know any poets in person, so I answered my own question... lol.

    It is called Mondo. I figured you might be interested, seeing how it has similarities to haiku.

    I really love this idea for a form, though I don't know how good I would be at doing it! You have soared to new heights just by attempting it, very nicely done my friend! I really enjoyed reading this delightful poem this afternoon! What a tremendous piece, Great work!!

    Thanks Russell! I love to introduce new forms :)

    I can say I've never heard of this form...don't worry, I ask myself questions and answer them all the time...then disagree with myself and get into a heated arguement with myself. Eventually I just tell myself to F-off...haha. And yes, I do actually eat the raw heart(just a bite, though) every time I make a kill...only the deer...not the smaller game. But i do keep and cook the hearts of all the game I get...except fish.

    Hmmm... maybe someday, I will try it... but it's doubtful. Lol... first I would need to go on an actual hunt! Maybe you should write a poet about your second personality having an arm wrestle... with you. Lol...

    It's not as nasty as it sounds...the taste is quite good if you can get over the warm blood and texture

    Happiness and sunshine is a greater feeling than staring at dark corners... lol! I seem to be on crazy extremes with the darkness and lightheartedness... *shrugs*... variety is the spice of life, so they say.

    Yes, ideally. Unfortunately I'm the only one, I know who is into the lost art of poetry (lol). Thanks for reading me once again Ndaba!
