Lucky Dip – Saturday Mix, 1 January 2022

Welcome to the Saturday Mix – Lucky Dip, 1 January 2022! And HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all!

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

You may be thinking to yourself, What on earth is Line Messaging?

Luckily, Shadow Poetry has an explanation…

Line Messaging

Line Messaging is a poetry form created by Angel Favazza is a poetic form wherein the poet utilizes the last line of each stanza to help represent an overall idea. So if the last line of each stanza is read together (separately from the poem) it will have an independent message or be a poem all on its own.

Example

I, a mere woman; yet of mind and heart,
walk alone past the cemetery gates.
Reaching out to touch the crude, dim metal
a glorious thought takes me—

I stand still for my heart can walk no more
and the vital force within my breast
grieves with the knowledge of a youth now faded.
Submit; succumb to this sublime graveyard,
beyond the sorrow of generations gone.

Independent flowers mock the very
ground from which they rise;
Inspiration grows within me.

    I don’t do so well with longer poems, but this is a cool idea. Maybe I will try. 🙂 Welcome to 2022, everyone.

        Longer poems are just shorter stories 😉

    I’m not sure I got the concept. But I wrote the three end lines first to make sure they worked and then filled in the rest of the stanzas for: Coy?
