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

Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 8 August 2020

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 8 August 2020!

For this week’s Lucky Dip, I have reached into my mystery bag and pulled out a Tableau. The topic is up to you!

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is a Tableau?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

The Tableau

The Tableau, a poetry form created by Emily Romano in October of 2008, consists of one or more verses, each having six lines. Each line should have five beats. There is no set rhyme scheme, although rhyme may be present. The title should contain the word tableau.

Since the dictionary states the word tableau means picture or representation, the poem should reflect this. A picture should come to mind as the poem is read.

Example of The Tableau 

Graveside Tableau

Sunlight cannot warm
The corpse of the bairn
Who drowned in the loch;
Stoic the father,
Silent the mother,
While a spinster weeps
