Brynn, Brynn – Manx(u) – August 7, 2015

I’m exploring … I still don’t have oodles of time, but I was introduced to this fav blog … Graeme Sandford – Guilty of Rhymes of Passion yesterday through several different people and found myself fascinated! Below is a poetry formed called  the Manx(u) form, an invented form which is an ode to cats with a 2, 2, 1, 6, 1, 4, ! syllable count (ending with “!”) introduced to him by Jane at Jane’s Musing … and yes Virginia … haiku poets often add ku or u to existing or new poetic forms 😉


Brynn, Brynn
thing –
like a diva – stretching
just another shot

she sits
with a plaintive meow
now, where’s the fish

    • She is adorable … my son’s actually and about two month’s old now … a real fashion queen when it comes to having her photo taken … glad you enjoyed it and thanks for the intro!

  1. Once I get caught up on return visits I shall have to explore this form further.
    I always mix forms… but then I am a rebel that way.
    I’ve mixed Elfje with haiku etc.

    Thanks for stopping by ‘The sound of one hand clapping’. Your reply reminds of best the young to experience such… and maybe learn, me of this statement…Grandparents and grand-children get along so well because they have a common enemy! 😉 Or some grandparents say if I had known grandchildren would be so much fun, I would have had them first 🙂

    • i love mixing and matching when possible … this is an invented form and I’m not really sure who invented it, perhaps Jane did … anyway it’s fun! My pleasure stopping by … I’ve always been intrigued by “the sound of one hand clapping” 😉
