The Symbiotic Life, By Donna Matthews

Tonight’s poetry form is called Haiku Sonnet Poetry. From Brewer, “The basic premise of the haiku sonnet is simple: four haiku tercets plus a couplet of either five or seven syllables adds up to fourteen lines, the same number of lines found in a sonnet.
* I do love me a haiku…


The Symbiotic Life

together
habitants of earth
survival

spotted cow
bred for nutrition
hungry crowd

need to eat
this humanity
all of us

green grasses
wide open spaces
her purpose

her life demands our notice
it’s the symbiotic life

Recently, I started a personal challenge to explore and write in 100+ different poetic forms.  To assist me in this journey is Robert Lee Brewer’s The Complete Guide of Poetic Forms where he gives the form and an example. The Symbiotic Life is #14 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.
