"crosswise"

Code: Select all

               pine
               tree
        flown faraway with
            the daystar
               light
                for
                ever 
               green
[/b]

Is this concrete poetry, Michael?

Siva,

shaped poem : VisPo : visual poetry

Yet, the form(and here color, too) - concrete colored shape - must be in service to content : form to function.

It's in green here; but for the IBPC finals(for our 3rd entry this month), I sent it in uncolored text, with the title, "X-wise."


Occasional poems must rise above the occasion.
