  1. PETRIFIED (A Four By Six*)

    Quivering on the brink
    Too nervous to engage
    Deep breath … Jump! Don’t you think
    Time’s come to act your age?

    * A fellow poet told me that as an exercise during a poetry course she attended one of the tutors, Scots poet Thomas A. Clark, challenged the participants to write a poem which managed to make a universal statement in no more than four lines each containing six syllables.

    I promised her that I would make an attempt at this myself. Here is the result.

    I also decided to mint a new poetic form: the four by six. Expect some more in the future. And by all means have a go for yourself. 🙂 ”
