Writing 201: Animal

“Make shapes with your poems. Go crazy with enjambment. And pay attention to the animal inside. Hello, Day 4!”

I read the above instruction and my first thought was: “Seriously? No way!” So this was a very very challenging assignment!  In a nutshell:

After much anguish and research and head-holding, here’s my take below …

In gentle waters

 

So I’ve learnt a new form and a new device but admit to not being sure if the above is a true illustration of the poetry challenge.  To say I’m in way over my head would be an understatement … but the goal is to see this course through to the end; wish me luck!

NB: Participating in the challenge as well? Then share the links to your work by leaving a comment; I’ll come right on over and visit 😀
