This is all

For Colleen’s ekphrastic prompt, view from my window. The form is one I’m using often at the moment, a Fibonacci sequence of syllables arranged in a trimeric form.

This is all

This is all there is, this meadow,
dandelion gold,
woven stalks
in green.


woven stalks,
where hares

in green

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

    1. I find this variation of the Fibonacci form addictive. You can count words or syllables, and the numbers can increase or decrease. Adding the repeated lines of the trimeric gives it a bit more interest.

      1. It’s more a question of commenting on the other poems than writing one myself. WP doesn’t let me comment on or like most posts, and for those it does, I have to log in each time. It takes forever.

      2. Any feedback shows support. I’ve noticed a concerning trend with just likes and no comment. I’ll take comments any day over likes.

      3. I’m guilty of that, if WP lets me leave a like, which is rare. Sometimes I’d just like to say that I’ve read the poem but I don’t have anything to say about it. Yes, I appreciate comments that are relevant to the poem, but when it’s just trading ‘nice things to say about one another’s poem’ it doesn’t really mean much.
