Beneath the shattered

Test me I am willing To fail Failure Is not fatal At all All things Are born to be Broken Break free From the outer Hard shell Shells can Hide the beauty Within With love Flowing freely We glow Glowing For all the world To see Seeing All the beauty They smile Smiling Brings them pleasure As well Welling Up from their soul A gift Gifted To all who are Shattered I decided to call this a "Mussetle Train" try one out it is fun. 2 4 2 non rhyming take a word from the end of each stanza(car) and use a derivative of it to form the premise of the next car in the train. I am playing with a non rhyming vesion of the Musette form. The last word of each stanza forms the premise of the next.

This Mussetle Train is a clever variation of the Musette form; to have it rhyming would be very hard! I have been wrestling with it for over an hour! But I think I have come up with something! // paul

Wait a sec, you made this up? How cool! Most creative of you, Rick. And you've created a most lovely poem as well - you should look up Kintsugi: the Japanese art of repairing broken pottery with melted gold. It's to signify that things are more beautiful - when they are broken.

Hi Tim, yes I hope it catches on. I would be honored if you give it a go. I wrote a poem about kintsugi, I like the metophor it offers for our redemption.
