A Pondering Poet~

Echoing Resolve

____________________________


Easy river run
down vast beauty light
in morning dawn
crest before my eyes

For autumn rain has gone
sparking light of silver grace
now lay peaceful strokes
on hillside of new day

Each thought still remain
in splashed hues of poetic verse
a quenching bath of love
upon soft sky of birth

A Test To Improve Your Short Form

How to get everthing you need to say in 3-short lines?

Go For It

Give It A Try

Theme-ONE TREE STANDING IN A DISTANT  FIELD
KIMO form is acceptable.

This form of poetry was invented in  Israel.
Kimo is a post-Haiku Poetic form,
consisting of three lines of  10, 7, and 6 syllables.
Kimo has evolved from the need of more
than 5,  7, and 5 syllables as in a Haiku or Senryu.
It usually describes one frozen scene that has no  movement in it.

-------ONE KIMO-------

10,7,6

ONE

Lets see some art.......

God bless

sounds like a lovely contest. I do enjoy kimo because they are not so limiting as a haiku is!

This will be a challenge, Rick. Don't think I've tried a kimo yet, but I like the theme of the single tree standing in a distant field. I'm sure you'll get some fantastic entries! Love, Carolyn
