Time For Kruti’s Poetry Prompt!

You know I like a prompt now and again, and in December Kruti had set some prompts for fiction, which I enjoyed writing, and she said she would be back with something different. That prompt came in the form of writing a Concrete Poem.

Todays prompt is gonna be a bit tedious :p – Can we all try writing a concrete poem? Yes of course we can.

Concrete, pattern, or shape poetry is an arrangement of linguistic elements in which the typographical effect is more important in conveying meaning than verbal significance. It is sometimes referred to as visual poetry, a term that has now developed a distinct meaning of its own.

Check her prompt post out here.

So, anyway, concrete poetry, or shape poetry… I hadn’t heard of it before, until, ironically, last weekend, when my daughter came home, and her homework was to write a shape poem. What on earth was a shape poem? Rhyming couplets about a square? Haiku about triangles? Sonnets about circles?

No, silly! It is a poem, or some writing, written in the shape of an object! She had do do one with the prompt word of Earthquakes, so she wrote a senses-inspired poem about the look, feel, taste, smell and sound of an earthquake, and each line looked like a crack!

And now it’s my turn!

Now not all of us are a creative genius on a computer, to write in various directions, so Kruti said we could write, the traditional way, on paper, and photograph the finished item…

So this is what I did!

It’s an ode to underpants! I hope you all like it, and actually, more than that, I hope you can actually see it!

Ode To Underpants!


I’m not sure if it even counts! But hey, I had fun doing it!
