Poem 111: Fettered

(The form of this poem is a diamante. I thought I would try to compose one and and possibly will never try again, although a diamante does have fairly strict rules – which is something I like!)

muddy, mucky,
rooting, snorting, grunting,
pigged-out, unfettered, stylish, carefree,
galloping, cantering, trotting,
saddled, haltered, fettered,

    So many contrasts. Fettered and unfettered, beauty and muck. I too like learning about these different forms of poetry. I hope your muses return. Doubt they’re in Delaware unless they’re winter muses and need a dose of icy rain.

      Yes – 4 weeks is quite a time, but I’ve been concentrating on music compositions over the month and the Muses of stories, music composition, and poetry, all await their turn!
