NaPoWriMo Poetic Form Challenge 19/30: Take-a-Line Tuesday

2016 NaPoWriMo

At Today’s Little Ditty, the DMC is to write an echo poem  Marilyn Singer has a new book, Echo, Echo featuring her Reverso poems.  I haven’t written one for six years.  You can find them HERE.

Since it’s “Take-A-Line” Tuesday, I borrow this from Marilyn Singer’s poem, “Narcissus and Echo”, “Leave me, foolish pursuer.”

Here’s my attempt:

In the mountains
I lift my head and yell
to the sky,
Leave me,
Foolish pursuer.
I listen for the echo.

I listen for the echo.
Foolish pursuer,
Leave me
to the sky.
I lift my head and yell
in the mountains.

It’s Tuesday. Time to share our slices at Two Writing Teachers.

    I love your poem, and it makes me want to look for the original. Reading the poems of many who are participating in different poetry challenges this month makes me think, next time, I need to push myself to do an April challenge, too.

    Love this–the few words repeated and inverted in the echo create an effect that makes me go hmmmmm….
