dVerse Poetics – an evening of short verse

At last, another chance to try my hand at an Englyn – a short sharp tricky little form with more rules than lines!

Thank you to dVerse for their evening of short verse – the perfect prompt to action for a procrastinating poet.

twigscribble – cold, foreign code
on opalescent sky – hallowed
message beyond normal eye
ours to scry, pry, find the road.

  3. You showed me this poetry form Sally and I’ve loved it ever since. Like Brian, I love the word ‘twigscribble’ so descriptive 🙂

    I am going to have to give this form a try. I will have to say that I liked “twigscribble” too!

  6. oh this is nice. I was going to do an englyn myself, but chose not to. Really do like the form a lot. This one is excellent. Love the words twigscribble, opalescent and scry is a favorite word of mine. Thanks for sharing with us.
