Summer’s Grip Releasing, By Donna Matthews

Tonight’s poetry form is called Hay(na)ku Poetry. From Brewer, “Hay(na)ku is a three-line poem with one word in the first line, two words in the second, and three in the third.” Variations include reversing the lines and chaining stanzas.
* I do love me a succinct form…


Summer’s Grip Releasing

leaves
gather again
in the fall

piles
grow high
until blown away

winds
turn cool
from the north

seasons
will turn
summer’s grip releasing

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. Summer’s Grip Releasing is #15 in this collection I’m calling, very simply, 100+ Poetic Forms.
