2017 NaPoWriMo1

This month, I am collaborating with nonfiction author and photographer, Christy Peterson.  You are invited to write and submit a poem based on the photo in the comments.

Agapostemon sweat bee

Today I have two poem in zeno form. This is a form invented by J. Patrick Lewis and shared as a challenge at Today’s Little Ditty in 2014.  I love this form.

I wrote the first version and then played with the placing of the lines.

  1. You’ve done the green sweat bees proud, Jone! I like how you slightly changed the wording in the second version. It’s almost like the little guy is is jumping from poem-flower to poem-flower. 🙂 I’ll keep my sweat to myself, though, thanks.
