This page is about the discipline of writing poetry or just writing for writing sake. Here we will be a bit academic in our focus. Let’s talk about some of our favorite literary devices we use in the creation of our poetry. I will start and feel free to add your thoughts about what makes you tick poetically. I like to talk about music also and it’s relationship to poetry. The spoken words and transmedia. How do you create poetry using another media?

One of my favorite poetic devices is a Haiku

“Haiku” is a traditional form of Japanese poetry. Haiku poems consist of 3 lines. The first and last lines of a Haiku have 5 syllables and the middle line has 7 syllables. The lines rarely rhyme.

I will write a Haiku about poetry

Poetry is life
Words give poetry meaning
Breathe a word with me
