Bloggers PhotoI guess you could say I'm a citizen of the world. I've traveled....and I've lived parts of my life in Iran, Lebanon, the US, and Cyprus. I am proud of my Armenian heritage. I was born in Tehran, Iran and soon after that, my family went to the States for my dad to work on his MA degree and many years later, to work on his Ed.D. I have a lot of the Middle East and the West in me, and at times....I feel confused about my identity. I do, however, cling to my Armenian roots and am outspoken about recognition by the world of the Armenian Genocide that took place nearly 100 years ago.

Since my parents had no common language, the language spoken in our home was English. Yes, I am most fluent in English, and I think, dream, and converse in that language, though I do speak 5 other languages to varying degrees! :)

I am melancholy/sanguine by nature and feel everything very keenly. My highs are SUPER HIGH...and my lows...SUPER LOW! I guess you could say...I'm INTENSE. I'm passionate about poetry to the point of obsession.

The events that have colored my life are the death of my mother due to MS and the war in Lebanon. As a child, it was hard for me to come to grips with the fact that my mother was ill, and to see her go from being a vibrant, well-loved teacher to a wheelchair bound, isolated woman was a very harrowing experience. I do believe, though, that there is a resurrection day and that, by His grace, I will see my Mama fully restored...free of wheelchair, able to sing, laugh, and smile again. The war in Lebanon...bombs landing all around, nights spent in bomb shelters.. has also scarred me to some degree.

What I'm most proud of? That would be my daughter...Shereen Natalie Ghali. She is the light of my life. Her name in Farsi means SWEET! :)

Currently, I teach English at Middle East University in Beirut, Lebanon. Poetry Soup has been a haven for me....most of the time! ;) I've developed amazing friendships here that are very genuine and real. My dream is to one day have my name on a volume of poetry! One can always dream....Thank you for making the effort to get acquainted. God bless!




OVER THE MOON! My new form.....


Blog Posted:3/20/2014 8:13:00 PM
Those of you who know me, know that poetry is my PASSION. I live, breath, dream, and LIVE it....INTENSELY!   If I don't write....I'm....unfulfilled. I'm DYING to make some sort of impact in this field. Yea, a little crazy, I know!

I've been fascinated with new forms that poets have come up with!!

Richard Lamoureux with his questionku! Good one, Richard! Proud of you!

Suzette Richards with her Suzette Prime...(I wrote a poem in that form, The Argument for Love, and she has it as a sample poem on her website!!!!)

Connie Marcus Wong with her CONSTANZA! :) What a beauty that is! Simply breathtaking! What a name! ;) 

Andrea Dietrich has new forms, but I haven't gotten to know what they are yet.

And here am I...humble little old me...trying to live the dream and come up with a NEW FORM! I had so much fun working on the swap quatrain for Andrea's contest. (Yes, the one that I forgot to enter and made such a hullabaloo about ) Well, it somehow got me working, and I came up with a form that is similar in some respects. I'm tickled pink that some poets have already used it with some variations. It has been used by F J Thomas, Richard Lamoureux, Jared Pickette, and now....Craig Cornish!

Craig has been a mentor to me. He has helped me with my sonnet form, which I have totally fallen in LOVE with...No, not the modern form but the good old fashioned variety!! I asked him to give me his opinion on my form...which was originally to be comprised of 3 stanzas of quatrains, each with a tagged on fifth line which was a combination of the ENDINGS of the following lines:

Stanza 1: fifth line ENDINGS of lines 1 & 2 of THAT stanza.
Stanza 2: fifth line ENDINGS of lines 2 & 3 of THAT stanza. 
Stanza 3: fifth line ENDINGS of lines 4 & 1 of THAT stanza.

Each stanza was to have a mono-rhyme for that stanza...and the theme of the poem was to be a reversal of what was presented in stanza one...something like the concept of a diamante. Start somewhere...end in the opposite place. I wrote one called Revenge's Reward. The twist? She starts by saying how she is exacting her revenge, and in the last line, we see that she is suffering because her heart is torn.

I'm thinking of sponsoring a contest in this NEW FORM! It needs a name. F J has suggested the Eileenesque. :) Some have suggest my last name. If you have read my BLOG As our Shadows Lengthen, you will understand why I want my first name or my maiden name instead of my married name there in the form name.

Would you kindly visit Craig's poem and give it a read? He has given an alternate type of rhyme pattern, and I'm SO curious to know what you all think and if this form has merit.

OH...if I have a new form..that becomes KNOWN...with my name on it...I THINK I WILL JUST FAINT AWAY WITH JOY AND HAPPINESS. It will be a DREAM COME TRUE FOR ME!!!! Oh....I wish...I wish...I wish....I W I S H!!!!

Will you visit Craig's poem? Here is he link:

http://www.poetrysoup.com/poems_poets/poem_detail.aspx?ID=551662

He gives a good explanation of the form, though he has made some variations. CRAIG...if you are reading this....I'm FLOORED!!! Thank you..thank you...thank you. A great big THANKS to the other poets who have tried it as well. LOVE YOU GUYS!

The rest of you? Get cracking and give me your opinions....Pretty please???? Help me live the DREAM!!!!

    Tail rhyme (translated from the French rime couée or Latin rhythmus caudatus, also called caudate rhyme): A unit of verse in which a shorter line, followed by a longer line or section of longer lines, rhymes with a preceding short line. It may also use rhyming couplets or triplets, followed by a tail or much shorter line, where the tails rhyme with one another. Usually the same metre (eg as applicable to a couplet) is employed throughout the poem. Spenserian sonnet: A variant on the English form is the Spenserian sonnet, named after Edmund

    BTW I don't (and never will) like poetry forms which call for metre. There had been too many "discussions" aound syllable counts: eg "every"- one or two... etc. Also, the emphasis of certain words used in the USA, falls differenlty in SA (making it difficult for me to track metre). So, please: no poetry form where metre is a strict rule of the form..... :-)

    I hope these notes, from my website, are of help to clarify and gel your thoughts around your proposed poetry form. As far as the topic of the poetry form is conscerned, I think that it is covered by the Romantism. It is not unusual to have a particular subject which you wish to express in a sonnet, eg Ekphrasis. Love, Su

    Hybronette: The form name is derived from hybrid and sonnet. This form is an offspring of a sonnet; that is to say that it must consist of fourteen lines; each line must be octal syllabic (ie 8 syllables per line), does not necessarily have to be iambic although it can be if desired, and the rhyme scheme can be ABABCDCDEFEFGG, couplet rhyme, or other acceptable schemes, allowing the poet more latitude to work with, and finally, the end rhyme can be a combination of rhymes (masculine, feminine, slant, etc.) or used anyway the poet deems appropriate.
    Richards Avatar Suzette Richards Date: 3/22/2014 4:28:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    A quatorzain (from French quatorze, fourteen) is a poem of fourteen lines. Historically the term has often been used interchangeably with the term 'sonnet'. Various writers have tried to draw distinctions between 'true' sonnets, and quatorzains. Nowadays the term is seldom used, and when it is, it usually is used to distinguish fourteen line poems that do not follow the various rules that describe the sonnet. A Fourteener, in poetry, is a line consisting of 14 syllables, usually having 7 iambic heptametric feet, most commonly found in English poetry produced in the 16th and 17th centuries. Fourteeners often appear as rhymed couplets, in which case they may be seen as ballad stanza or common metre hymn quatrains in two rather than four lines. The term may also be used as a synonym for quatorzain, a 14-line poem, such as a sonnet.
    Richards Avatar Suzette Richards Date: 3/22/2014 4:27:00 AM Block poet from commenting on your poetry

    Spenserian sonnet: A variant on the English form is the Spenserian sonnet, named after Edmund Spenser (c.1552-1599), in which the rhyme scheme is abab, bcbc, cdcd, ee. A Spenserian sonnet does not appear to require that the initial octave set up a problem that the closing sestet answers, as with a Petrarchan sonnet. Instead, the form is treated as three quatrains connected by the interlocking rhyme scheme and closed by a couplet. The linked rhymes of his quatrains suggest the linked rhymes of such Italian forms as terza rima. {From Wikipedia} - Also, see Quatorzain/Fourteener under the Gallery here

    Thank you for the mention, Eileen. Yes, your poem is featured on the blog on my website: Suzette - Poet & Author. It made its debut on my fb page, Let's Talk Poetry & Prose. It is a fine example of Suzette Prime. I will have a look at the poem mentioned and comment directly on there. Love, Su

    This is wonderful Craig. I really thought the repeating lines added more depth to the poem and I think she may decide to do as you suggest in having alternate rhyme schemes. It was creative the way you have written it. This is what I wrote Craig about the poem he created Eileen. I wish you all the luck in the world for your dream to come true. I think it is beautiful. Hugs, C

    Connie! I'm so glad you passed by. SO sweet of you! Thanks ever so much! I really do like your form...It is just lovely and I enjoyed writing for that contest. I did get second place! :) I'm glad you liked Craig's poem. It is lovely...Thanks for your encouragement. I do want to have a form named after me....SO BADLY. Perhaps this is a little too complicated. Maybe I can come up with something else. I'll keep trying! HUGS! :)

    Eilleen, Your blog got me curious to check my two created forms and I was surprised to see five workshops on the Hexsonneta. Gosh I only wrote one or two of them myself and there are all kinds of them on the internet as well as that 7/5 trochee, which is not quite an invention, just my putting a name to a common type of meter and putting a rule to it for a type of poem. So fun looking at examples on it online! Soon that will be you, seeing your form on google. One of my friends, who did Wrapped refrain and Trijan refrain, has tons of poets using her forms. She invented like TEN!!!

    Hey, Eileen. this is so cool. I just saw Craig's poem that you directed us too. He sure has you described well! The romantic poet. It's a very cool form and I love the name F.J. suggested for you. It sounds very elegant. By the way, I only have two forms: Hexsonneta, which I have never promoted here, and the 7/5 Trochee, which I have done a few contests for. Hope you will check that one out sometime!!

Richard has done a lovely one too....Beneath the Tree...and Flo and Jared.

I want to see what people think of having mono-rhyme or a different rhyme pattern. We will see how this blog goes...and then...THEN...maybe! :) Thanks for the vote of support.
