Playing with “Form For All”

May 31, 2012

Oh Crap! Sam Peralta over on is challenging us to write something, perhaps freeverse, sonnets, haiku, etc…but disguise it so we ‘break’ the form.

His challenge is hard enough!  I post a sonnet here, and I found that writing sonnets gave me a very different voice in poetry…one that I did not recognize in myself….and well, just was so different.

So, I want to play along, but I probably fail miserably at this game.

Lady Nyo


When Lug dragged his cock upon the earth deep

And threw up mountains and hillocks in haste

Fair Aine came behind him with sweet seeds reap’d

And fertile was the land, no virgins chaste

Followed the reapers and saw the crows fly

Up in the air with black wings flapping sound.

She watered the plantings with moisture, sighed

For Lug had others of mistresses round.

Fair Aine pined in sorrow, her heart laid bare

All other women Lug held with his charm

When she walked afield, the men  did dare

To raise their eyes and hearts without alarm.

The children she bore now, peppered the earth,

And Lug still dragged his cock, taunting with mirth!
