    Well done Lillian! Brilliantly executed. However on Earth did you manage to get this format of WordPress? Would love to know the secret to this diamond 😉

      If I could only remember — I shifted to the “new” way to post things (which my computer’s been asking me to do for months!) – went out of visual, or stayed in visual???, and somehow hit something like preform at or something?? Dumb luck I think!! 😜

      Oh….and I used my MacAir, not my iPad. I’ve found the iPad great to read responses, write replies etc (like now) but horribly frustrating to write WP posts in! Doesn’t seem to do the formatting or if it will – I don’t have the patience to figure out!

    This is quite amazing, form follows function – love this. I don’t think I’d ever be so brave as to tackle such a challenge.

      Was quite the spatial challenge. I had fun with it — for me, it’s a much more natural process than creating rhyme that flows with the meaning. Hmmmmm….wonder what that says about my brain!!

    I think it’s quite powerful.

      So glad you liked it! Very fun to layout and count the letters etc and then a challenge to get something meaningful out of it too. Like a puzzle.

    I love the strength that flows through the words seamlessly, its so quietly firm.
    Quite impressive.

    I love how I can tell from what little I have read of your work that you relish the challenge that comes with the tasks.
    Well done.

      Thank you so very much for your wonderfully kind words. Humbly proud, I am. Many many thanks!!!
      Yes, the challenges of this class have been quite fun! Just published my final poem for Writing 201: a sonnet! But without rhyme. I find rhyme the most difficult…I’m a free verse kind of gal. Truly admire folks who can rhyme AND have their words flow, the meaning being the heart of the poem.
      Thank you again! Happy I am!
