whew. i figured it out

ok, so now i'm back in the saddle after a few days of not knowing how to access my own blog; an auspicious beginning. i am much heartened by all the wonderful encouragements i got to my first post. accordingly, i'll post some of the poems mIEKAL showed me about, namely a form initiated by sheila murphy of 1 five-letter word/two four-letter words/three three-letter words.

crack
open muse
now now now

marks
onto lace:
pin her ear

maybe
lost into
dew-eye day

never
fear your
rub, arm-boy

habit
less
ness:
it's not bad

trace
rose lips
our mad joy (that's the keatsian one...)

River
move over
one new hut

and the soap opera digest:
anger
over love
put her off

parse
more arse
fat ass rut

Think
true much,
you li'l imp!

and after after emmett:
glass
blow blue
row sea oar...

light
over moon
dye the sky

Split
star born
yes her sin

Tzara:
dada-word
fun for you!

money
isn't many
hey you rat!

idiot,
cool fool:
die for art!

I can't go on I'll go on and on and on...

    Maria, my memory fails me again. I should have remembered words, not letters. I started feeling like I led you astray in saying that Sheila M had created a form with 1 five letter, 2 four letter, 3 3 letter lines. But I wasn't totally wrong. Sheila's original poems are posted below...:

    house
    absorbs emptiness
    all its life

    *

    days
    purposely mean
    not a thing

    *

    emotion
    fill shadow
    with white voice

    *

    still
    the habit
    holds the habit

    *

    nest
    from which
    I have fallen

    Eh, you might mention that this form is related to the
    hay(na)ku form, created by Eileen Tabios, with one word on the first line, two words on the second, and three words on the third line. See: http://eileentabios.blogspot.com/

    I always wondered what a hay(na)ku was... Thanks for clearing that up..
