Suggested Poetic Form: Haibun
A poem that uses prose blended with a haiku to tell a story about the subject matter. I was surprised by how easy it was to connect the two forms. Might actually be a new favourite. I need to experiment with the form some more, I think it lends itself to storytelling. I can see haibuns used in stories to help make a point.
Word Prompts: beneath, uncover, clear, unspoken, truth
Something in this month is leading me to deeper personal truths and some growth. I like to keep a bit secret, so I won't explain it, but let you see what you can devise. I would love a comment or two about what today's poetic fodder means, Dear Reader. I like to spark discussion, so have at it.
This is my course correction!
There is a certain sadness when the song come on the radio. Clear melody echoing around me. This reminds me of the obvious truth; slowly turning the dial; the apartment fills up with silence. It has been a long time since I walked this hallway, which is normally filled with noise. Today, it is different. With the radio finally silent, I slowly step into the hallway; footsteps echoed deep as I finally reach the door. It is not locked.
The farthest distance--
never traveled in the noise
now, ready to leave.
