I am going to try something new for the next few weeks in regard to Poetry Thursday. Some of you who have been reading my blog for a while may have read that I chose the nicknames for my family based on various styles of poetry. Over the next few weeks, I am going to try to present an example of each of those types of poetry, one each week. I decided to participate in Poetry Thursday mostly to give myself an incentive to write poetry more often, as I have in the past. In keeping with that, I plan to write these examples myself. I began by writing an aisling today, but I need to edit it and "live with it" for a few days before sharing it here. I hope that will be next week's Thursday post.
"Poetry lifts the veil from the hidden beauty of the world, and makes familiar objects be as if they were not familiar." ~ Percy Bysshe Shelley
