My Other Poetry
News print poems are very restrictive. My "regular" poems are sometimes very emotional and somtimes quite humorous. I use a lot of forms-- rhyming and free verse. When I rhyme I try for unusually rhyme schemes--instead of ABAB or AABB, I'll have 7-line stanzas and make the third and seventh line rhyme or I'll change the rhyme scheme from stanza to stanza. I like to experiment with differnt rhyme schemes. I also use internal rhyme and near rhyme.
Here is a poem from my book, The Poetry Connection.
