Writing 201 Day 1: Screen. Haiku. Alliteration

Hiding in pixels
Movies mirroring life’s mess
Seeing self on-screen
Living blind in reverse mode
Hurting is not virtual

I joined Writing 201: Poetry. This is my first assignment.

Poetry with the word “Screen.” The poetic form is haiku and the poetic device is alliteration. We could also combine haiku with tanka, which follows a 5-7-5-7-7 syllabic pattern.

Bear with me, I am no poet. I intend to have fun, and learn about poetry, without losing my followers along the way.  😉

          1. I struggled too, Lucile. I never heard odf a prose poem before! I think I just wrote a paragraph with flowery words but I did manage an internal rhyme! I will take a look at yours! Wonder what’s in store for us tonight?


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
