My newest adventure is underway. It has lead me to take up residency in a new blog,
Like the Feathers of an Arrow (affectionately known as LFA).

0 Villanelle--Come to Bear

i thought to study a form of poetry
to expand myself and explore something new
thinking i could master it so simply

to pull words together and set my soul free
by expressing myself and my point of view
i thought to study a form of poetry

everything it shall take is deep inside me
though i hide it away--showing it to few
i know i could master it so simply

so i read and i read until i could see
what the masters of this form already knew
i thought to study a form of poetry

with my newfound knowledge how hard could it be
writing this poem i could definitely do
no doubt i could master it so simply

now that i read it over, was i crazy
to attempt such a feat and give it its due
i thought to study a form of poetry
as though I could master it--so simply
