Broken lines


Broken lines

Across plain surfaces your fruit opines!   A1
Describes your artistry and sightly write   b
the art of poetry: The broken lines!   A2

Unleash your fantasy on page-designs   a
(arrhythmic doggerel attacks that bite),   b
across plain surfaces your fruit opines!   A1

Miraculous your literature aligns   a
ambitious text in rounded form but trite,   b
the art of poetry: The broken lines!   A2

The heavens open and the void enshrines   a
the structured verse, while cumulus contrite,   b
across plain surfaces your fruit opines!   A1

The fancy fonts' array, rotund, entwines   a
while fresh cerebral onion rings recite   b
the art of poetry: The broken lines!   A2

The fruity shaped artistic form resigns,   a
your freedom of poetic thought and sprite   b
across plain surfaces your fruit opines   A1
the art of poetry: The broken lines!   A2

Conclusion:

( The art of poetry (free or structured verse) is not the discontinuation 
(braking) of lines that offer to the text a pretty layout, the used fonts,
the geometrical shapes of the text body (circles, rectangles, fruits,
triangles etc) and its alignment on the page ).  
---------
The art of real poetry (free or structured verse), is the intellectual and poetic qualities, devices and rules the poet eloquently merges in his creations. )

    This was very well expressed in a humorous way, and I agree with you, Giorgio. True poetry is not about the shape, the form, or the length of the lines. True poetry is about the beauty, the heart, and the soul that you put into the words. Very nicely done, Giorgio!...Thank you very much for the kind comments on my poem. :)

    Marvelous in structure, form, rhyme and cogency. Instructive, yet you do not teach so much as arouse, the realm in which learning truly occurs. Thanks for your example.

    Learning is an inside-out process. Teachers cannot force from outside-in but must rather arouse the student's interest. The student then takes the necessary steps to internalize through study and application. Others have stated this far more articulately.

    Interesting and challenging. Yet, I am not sure how to define that last detail. Thank you very much, Mark!
