the first line was the title of the poem, something i usually do when i write.
that was something i wrote in about ten minutes and wanted to get it down before i lost it all.
my mind is constantly going and if i don't write down ideas i lose them most of time, that is one reason i wish i had a job that could afford a little more time to do that. but i guess it wouldn't be called work then lol.
je cherche, tu cherche, est-ce que tu trouve que tu cherche pour la? i look, you look, do you find what you're looking for?
I didn't answer your sonnet question properly, even after all those words! You asked why I use a format of several stanzas, although the ancient form is one stanza.
Well, we can divide the 14 lines into various blocks of rhyme, or of sense, or whatever, and that is what I'm showing in the presentation of several stanzas.
Classically, we have the octet and then the sestet (eight then six). But when you compose, you find - uh, well I find anyway - that the first four lines and the last two have tremendous importance.
That started me dividing the fourteen line unit into these sub-units and trying to emphasize how they get to be sub-units.
I really don't think that matters a lot, unless you are deeply into composing sonnets yourself! However, I hope that my presentations like that make it easier for the modern reader, or the reader unfamiliar with poetry, to follow the poem and understand and enjoy it.
I didn't invent this ... twentieth-century poets have been doing every experiment one can imagine with the sonnet.
A fanatic, I have made big coloured charts on my wall which show full sets of some possible rhyme-schemes and stanza formats. I can read a new sonnet form off the charts and try it out!
I'm glad you like my poem "Love isn't Poetry"
Wow I think I should write more silly little poems, it seems I get more thoughtful comments on those than the ones I actually try to be serious in xD
ah the way the mind works, I love it. So thank you for your comment and taking the time to leave me one =3 and if there is any way I can return the favor, please leave the link to a poem on my page and it would be much appreciated.
