Firewood

Firewood Panorama

Though night
conceals the day
our winter’s wood is dry.
Take me in I beg of you. Tell me what I need to do.
With joy and thankful cry
we walk the way
with Light.


Linked to Farrago Express where the prompt is to write a saturnica, a poem of 7 lines with rhyme pattern ABCDCBA with syllable counts 2/4/6/14/6/4/2 centered to look like the planet Saturn with its rings.

I enjoy walking, poetry and short prose as well as taking pictures with my phone.

    1. I used a single block. Rather than pressing Enter to get a new line (and a new block) I pressed Shift Enter. This gave me a new line within the same block. After the poem was done, I highlighted the entire block and selected the center alignment at the top. Thank you, Oneta!

  1. I like the poem. This is a fine example of a Saturnica, and I am especially impressed with the internal rhyme in the center line. My heartiest complement!
