d’Verse Poets Pub – Poetics: True Colours?
Mish wants to know what the colors say
Call Me Gray
You think you can ignore me because
But I am many shades and tints,
I am the background of your colorful life
me blues would not be as vibrant, yellows would have no
and the color wheel would be nothing but
A new poetic form from me
“This week, a Poetic Asides member shared a poetic form she created. While I don’t usually share nonce forms, I’ve tried this one myself, and I think it’s a lot of fun. So without further ado, I’m introducing Candace Kubinec’s form, the Waltmarie (which is itself a nod to PA members and Poetic Bloomings hosts, Marie Elena Good and Walter J. Wojtanik).” Robert Lee Brewer on Poetic Asides, 2/12/21
Waltmarie Poetic Form-
