My Seaside

LIVING BY MY SEASIDE “Your seaside”, you say, “how so?” I don’t own my sea, have no deeds for a piece of beach nor any boat docked in a harbour. Anyone can walk on the sand here and dip their toes in the (not crystal clear) water.  They are welcome to skim stones and build […]

The Love Affair

My First Lipogram

 

lipogram
noun: lipogram; plural noun: lipograms
a composition from which the writer systematically omits a certain letter or certain letters of the alphabet.

For my poetry class I had to write a Lipogram by using only one vowel throughout the whole poem. Not only that, but I had to ensure every word included this vowel. It was so much fun writing this but know it’s far from perfect.  There are different sounding “E’s” there but I was going for the visual effect in the poem, more than the sound. I will experiment more with Lipogram’s though – I like them.

They’re web-fed led
Lepers self-rejected

Weed seeped belted Freshmen
Seek fermented brew
The rebel’s pester spree

Keen newlywed greed
He feeds her sex
She feels he’s erect

Elders check the scene
Newness never emerges
Let them revel free
Let them seek the essence
Let them be
