Calm Peaceful I slumber In morning void Of unneeded noise Crash! Rumble! Thump! Bang! Boom! That which man builds Brings with it much sound I Wake to Cacophony Of construction Morning peace now gone
I begin National Poetry Month for 2021 whinging in poem as this morning I was once again startled awake by the sounds of construction happening around my block before my alarm clock had the honors.
Today’s form: the Arun.
A nonce poem created by friend and fellow blogger, GirlGriot, an Arun is a fifteen-line poem in three sets of five lines. Each set of five lines follows the same syllable structure: starting with one syllable and increasing by one syllable with each line. 1/2/3/4/5 — 3x. There are no other rhyme or structural requirements.
