Bushka who writes at autumnambles has created a new metre for writing. He calls it the hourglass because it looks like one. It’s an interesting concept indeed. I am handicapped when it comes to writing with rules, as I have admitted several times before. But the hourglass looked so beautiful that I really wanted to try my hand at it. And here is an ‘Hourglass’ that talks about how the ‘Hourglass’ came to be!
I wonder aloud what I should do next
Pick a book or send a text
Or maybe I should
Write a little
My heart out
So here I am trying
To get this ‘Hourglass’ right
Tell me now, do you really have it in sight?
Honestly, it has been one of the toughest things to do…arranging words and meaning to look a particular way and to not compromise on what I’m trying to say. But it has been super fun creating this little piece here. I hope I get better at this though!!!
Do try writing ‘Hourglasses’…they are super fun! And definitely visit Bushka at his amazing blog…he writes the most incredible poetry…I’m sure he would be happy to have you all over 🙂
Cheers, have a super lovely day!
