L for ABC Wednesday

ABC WEDNESDAY ROUND 7: L




Leaf of Summer

a loose leaf
lifted by the wind
landed on the pond
caught by camera lens...
lightly treading water

 
This gogyohka poetry form is explained at http://www.fivelinepoetry.com/ I'm quite fond of short and easy poetry like captured snippets of thoughts.

I like your captured snippets of thoughts too.
You said it all in just a few short words. Excellent.

Julie Jordan Scott said...

So excited for this new form! I am going to try it... love what you say AND love the image of the leaf. I wrote a poem earlier today that I titled "Look under the leaves."

So grateful to read your words today!

L is for Longing

You keep revealing to me (us) about all these forms of short poetry. I had no idea and I love all these formats.
Wow. Love the leaf shot too. It's amazing!

Lovely leaf, and a new word for me to learn. What more could I ask from the letter L ? (It is also my middle initial.)

The rhythm of the breeze is in your gogyohka. The leaf looks as though it has wings.
