La poesia

Durante este semestre, yo estoy estudiando y escribiendo poesia. Que divertido. -_-;

Erm, in English: During this semester, I am studying and writing poetry. How fun. -_-;

Every other week, we have to write a poem. And I’ve done that. Plus a few others… like the first week, I wrote two sonnets. One was just me messing around, and the other I turned in… and this week, we had to write either a pantoum or a sestina, and I couldn’t decide which one I liked best, so I actually did both. My pantoum made its way around the room, so we’ll see what people think…

I added all of these to the poetry work bench page, as well as mucked around with it [a lot]. I’ve decided to do the Google docs deal, at least for poetry now, and have thusly converted all my poetry to that, and added the iFrames to the posts. It looks ~brilliant~. But if you’re lazy, here’s the new stuff (which has been for class)

Lift Off
How high in the sky can your little wings fly?

Crickle, Crackle
Crickle, crackle, I flare up in the night

Sick Day
The stars begin to exit just as you leave

Do you feel it now? The lick of the wind

Twilight Rain
Kiss me in the falling rain

So I heard Superman’s going bankrupt
So, I heard you could fly

Another thing – I changed all of the “summaries” to the first lines of the poem. The summaries were dumb… except a few, which I ended up keeping. :P
Urgh. I have to write a free verse poem in the style of Frank O’Hara for next time. URGH I tell you, URGH.
