Mindlovemisery's Menagerie

A dose of fetish. Good friends. An incomparable muse.

Sunday Writing Prompt “Shape Poetry”


I want you to try your hand at shape poetry! Don’t let the fish fool you, you can choose whatever shape you like. The shape of the poem should be relevant to the poem’s content in some way but it need not be literal.

    I’ve done shape poems… but from my files to WP they do not translate (copy and paste) well.

    I know one can fart with adding blank line space(s), and there might be other ways to add a shape poem to WP. But it’s just well rather fishy for me so I’ll pass.

        I can do them in my documents, but I can’t transfer them. I don’t know how to copy and paste the ‘image’ of the words. Though I’ve seen other folks do that. WP needs to get on the ball for poets 😉

    My contribution is a “sorta” shape-ly po.em. My computer skills and computer programs limit what sorts of text manipulation I can do.
