      Hello Donna, The syllable count is somewhat difficult, but i enjoy this type of poetry. Glad you enjoyed...

      I'm fascinated by how you can express so much with so few words! I really enjoyed this one.

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

      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

      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 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...

      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?
