My goodness... I'm absolutely overtaken! These are good tears. Thank you for this. I think we all need to watch this every morning to set our hearts and minds straight, don't you? Great rictameter; I'd love to see your sestinas!

Let's hear it for our Ruby.

She mastered the haiku game.

Then came the rictameter.

With that, she did the same.

What next will sweet Ruby unfurl?

Maybe - tomorrow - she'll conquer the world?

Hello Purplmama, So nice to meet you. Thank you for a gracious comment. I have never tried the sestina poetry. It strikes me as being difficult and quite long, maybe one day i will venture...

I love your journey through poetic varieties. Rictameter is new to me and you did it so well, Ruby. I have done a sonnet amongst my poetry hubs called ' My language flees me'. Maybe you will write a sonnet soon. this easter -verse is splendid. Happy Easter, hugs.


always exploring profile image

always exploring 4 years ago from Southern Illinois Author

Hello Docmo, Thank you so much for your splendid remark. I have never done a sonnet, perhaps i will. 14 lines-10 syllables per line and must be in rhyme. I want to see your sonnet. I will visit soon...Cheers
