      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?

      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.

      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

      Love it! It's surprising how much can be said and inferred with not so many words, isn't it? You do it well.
