Hic…

Our prompt for the day (optional as always) is inspired by Kaschock’s use of space to organize her poems. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a “concrete” poem – a poem in which the lines and words are organized to take a shape that reflects in some way the theme of the poem.

No

no

am

not

the

type to

drink every day

but I must admit

that loneliness is

pushing me now

to the bottle a bit

more than what

is ah! wee dram

you see no man

is an island and

like a lone ship

adrift on waves

I float in and out

of alcoholic stupor.

(Please visit my site and don’t read it in the reader to see the shape.)

  1. I love it. Perfect, Punam. Very nice wine bottle shape, too. I’m sure many can relate. I’ve abstained for a year but admit the thought has crossed my mind. We live in interesting times. But here in the countryside a good pour of spring sunshine is also fine. ;))) :)))) xoxoxo

    1. May your abstinence continue, dear Nadine! This seemed the simplest shape that was manageable Lol
      These are sure interesting times if we look outwards more. So much the nature is offering us to cheer us up. Stay safe, stay strong, dear friend. ❤️🌷🌞

      2. Good! If kids can remain untainted by our stress, it is so good for them. You take care and don’t worry too much about the rest of the family here.
        Yes, we are doing well, Pallavi.
        Hugs to you too, my dear. ❤️
