SOLSC18 13/31: Skinny Poem Attempt

JRM sol

Thank you to Two Writing Teachers for holding space for us to sharing our writing

every day in March.

I’m always in search of new forms and found this one today, the SKINNY POEM.

DEFINITION/How To: A Skinny is a short poem form that consists of eleven lines. The first and eleventh lines can be any length (although shorter lines are favored). The eleventh and last line must be repeated using the same words from the first and opening line (however they can be rearranged). The second, sixth, and tenth lines must be identical. NOTE: All the lines in this form, except for the first and last lines, must be comprised of ONLY one word.
Here’s my attempt

In the morning, she walks
She walks in the morning
