#frapalymo poetry prompt ~ 23nov16


I was quite charmed by yesterdays elevenie even though my topic was rather depressing. But never mind. A new day and a new #frapalymo prompt. Here is what @FrauPaulchen has to offer us today:

how manyfold those elevenies were! they definitely underestimated… 

the completion of the little poetic form trilogy is a favourite and here often used as prompt poetic form. i speak of the pantoum. 

the #frapalymo prompt no 23 is: “write a green pantoum” . you have to engage a little with the pantoum. if you do that you’ll get a wonderful aha moment. you can find more about the pantoum and how it works here on wikipedia. i want to add that a pantoum does not need to rhyme but it can be. me as a rhyme unwilling interprete the pantoum without rhymes. but there are rhyme artists amongst us and so i am looking forward to rhymed and unrhymed pantoums. a third and last time there is a colour: green is supposed to inspire you even more. 

…and the small print: please let me know via email or twitter if you take part. then I can post the link to your blog/poem on Twitter. or post the link in the comments under the daily prompt post on my blog. the hashtag for Twitter is #frapalymo, and I am @FrauPaulchen.”

Of course, my fellow English speaking poets and poetesses rather let me @Morgaine620 know or post the link here in the comments.

You can find the original German post here.

This time I am happy to find out that Kiwinana is taking part in English #frapalymo. You can find her red elevenie here:

  1. Thank you, kind lady, for the mention.
    I will have to do some study on today’s prompt for “write a green pantoum” as I don’t even know anything about it, but you have left a Wikipedia link, so I will study it.
    Have a nice day,
