Friday Web Finds

 

 

This week, I learned a new Poetic Form: the Pantoum.  It’s a poem composed of four-line stanzas. The difference is that the second and fourth lines of each stanza are used as the first and third stanza of the next stanza. Sounds confusing? Here’s a sample:

I listened and heard the trees
Singing with the birds
The sun shone brightly, dancing merrily
As nature’s music played.

Singing with the birds
I felt my heart skip
As nature’s music played;
Life seemed so grand

I felt my heart skip
As nature welcomed me warmly
Life seemed so grand,
I couldn’t ask for anything more.

 

The Paris Review features an interview with Henry Miller, on The Art of Fiction.

And if you’re still trying to begin a writing habit, you may want to read From Commitment to Writing Habit .
