who looks?

Kerry is hosting at Toads. Greetings to all! Today is the day we put the “mini’ back into the Sunday Mini-Challenge, and return to the option of form poetry. The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but you may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). Choose your own form or write in free verse, if preferred.

This weekend, our frame of reference is “Uncomplicated Things” – from the second line of the poem, The Moon, by Leonard Cohen. I look forward to reading a number of short poems, from Saturday through to Monday. The link does not expire, so please feel free to write more than one poem, and a return to comment on poems linked later would be appreciated.

I am going with an American sentence this  morning. I didn’t know that until I finished writing. Funny huh? This may appear complicated. It is not.


from here i look outward

don’t see my face

but am aware that i look

    Hey Paul, I think you need a mirror to see your face. Just saying, it’s easier that way, less contortions. But it sure does make for a nice reading poem. Thank you.
    I’ve written some American Sentence Poems. The group I wrote with was expecting a Haiku without any syllables. Sort of easy that way.
