SOLSC Day 27 - More oddquain poems




Slice of Life Story Challenge -- 
Day 27  #SOL17
More oddquain poems



****************
After writing some oddquain poems (the poems have 5 lines total, with syllable counts of 1, 3, 5, 7, 1 on the lines) yesterday, I thought I'd try writing a few more today that were NOT all about nature, as mine usually are. I wrote two that were about emotions...and then another nature one snuck in on me. At that point, I wanted to get totally away from those themes, so I choose a not-so-deep subject -- a food (just to see if I could) -- for my last oddquain for today.

Monday's oddquains:


Self-Control
Fierce
emotion
tries to escape me
but I pull it back in, pause,
breathe.



Over the Moon
Joy 
radiates
from every part
of her being; her sparkle
flows



Hiking
Traipse
consciously
through meadows and woods...
nature's sweet sights, sounds, and smells:
Life!



Lasagna
Hot
broad noodles,
thick with rich cheeses,
spicy sauce, and tasty meat:
Yummmmm


Okay, now I've made myself hungry. But I'm certainly having fun experimenting!

  1. A perfect one to end today...and just in time for dinner. It is a surprisingly nimble poetic form.

  2. I love your oddquain poems. I am going to have to try some out... My favorite is Over the Moon. I also liked how you challenged yourself to write about different subjects.

  3. These are delightful. I'm going to have to try my hand at them.
    I wonder, do evenquains exist?
