Senryu – Bildungsroman
Tale of adventure;
A hero faces a foe,
Today I am taking part in my third poetry marathon, an annual event in which poets from around the world come together writing one poem per hour for 24 hours using a variety of written and visual prompts.
Hour 8 Having taken a bit of time away to do some family support I have a couple of hours to catch up on. One of the books I’ve read this yer, which I’ll admit has been a somewhat arduous read is Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel ‘Kidnapped’. Assigned as part of a university modules reading list I admit now that I still haven’t finished the story cover to cover, even after thorough analytical study this year.
Never the less I enjoyed trying to write a summary of this style of story-telling in a variety of poetic styles, as you may be able to see fromm the resulting poems from this hour.

Repeat gained knowledge
To reinforce the lesson
Pass the learning on
You will show you understand

Limerick – Kidnapped (RLS)
A boy, turned man, makes a trip
but gets taken away in a ship.
He leaves in a hurry;
then through Scotland he scurries,
still at least he avoided the whip.2021©DSCoremans
Happy Writing. Stay Safe. Stay Distracted.
