Pensieve's Poetic License-July


I am going to give it a try this month. Robin has come up with her own creative poem type.

What is a Pensieve? A titled, five-line poem; each line correlates to one of the five senses--sight, sound, scent, taste, touch--and describes the subject (title). The goal is for the reader to take on the poem as his own, being able to "experience" your subject through your words, by seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting and feeling what you described.

E-Bay
I spot my item on the screen.
The bell sounds and the challenge begins.
Wrist flicking,  Mouse clicking,
Breathing in the aroma of victory.
Nevertheless I have also tasted the agony of defeat.
All will be well when I have my prize in hand.
Go visit Robin @ Pensieve for more poems.

Robin said...

Oh, my...when I read your title, I smiled. When I read your pensieve? From ear to ear! Oh, how I can relate when I've been looking for something.

See? I LOVE the diversity of these poems. With every one, I have such a sense of how the author feels about their subject.

Well done! So glad you decided to write one--it's perfect!
