Shadowed moon flickers
on windblown cornstalk stubble.
Red fox stalks its prey,
hunting through snow covered field.
Hunter in wool cap takes aim.
Frank hosts dVerse tonight, the virtual pub for poets. We are to consider the polytoton: rhetorical repetition of words within a poem, but each time used in a different way (cornstalk and stalks; hunting and hunter).
I’ve used the Tanka form: 5 line poem with 5, 7, 5, 7, and 7 syllables.
Pub opens at 3 PM Boston time. Come join us! Image from Pixabay.com
