I love all your poems ladies!! ^_^ And I also am suffering from nothingness...
as it is not busy at work today I need to think of something!
Tomorrow I move into my new apartment! So it's a now or never moment for me! Smile

I think I have just made my first Haiku...

Dal rimes with call
Call rimes with shall
Shall I buy another Dal?

(I think the answer to that is always yes! )

I wrote haikus for the two Dals I have...

My name is Ra Muw
Gadgets and gears are my game
I'm a steampunk girl


I'm Monomono
Messy hair and monkey suit
I don't give a damn

Great job, both of you!  And I totally forgot about attempting some poetry while riding in the car tonight because I was yacking instead. Sad

Ok, here's a quicky:

Writing a poem about Dals isn't easy
The thought of it makes me quite queasy
I'm sad as a Gloomy Bear
With nothing to wear
Naked isn't fun when it's breezy
Surprised

Thank you all, I'm glad for your appreciation!. Embarassed It sounds a bit goofy but I'm glad to take part.

Dal - a poem

What rhymes with Dal?
Not gal or Hal or pal.

Not ball or hall or wall.
Not kale or shale or sale.

Not rail or fail or tail.
Not veil or shall or haul.

What rhymes with Dal?
Nothing. Nothing rhymes with Dal.

Dal sounds alone.

Love it, Alliecat!

I'm going to give a diamante a try. A diamante is a poem shaped like a diamond, with opposites at either ends, two adjectives and three verbs related to each subject, and a connecting line in the middle.


                Dal
          pouty, cute
  posing, frowning, intimidating
We may be different, but we're besties.
gawping, questioning, trying to keep up
       clueless, innocent
               Byul

I had the same question.
But I try to think she has her brother and her best friend.

You all are making a great job, even the simplest ones are so meaningful.

By the way, is it a contest or are we just celebrating Dal with our poems?

It is not a contest, we are just celebrating Dal. Everyone will get a raffle entry for each poem they submitted, and I will draw one to win the calendar. There will also be a raffle at the end based on all the events.

Cool, dargos! I was pretty sure I'd never heard of a "diamante" but after reading it I think I might once upon a time in school have seen something along the same lines; the opposites etc. seem vaguely familiar... dunno if it was called that... Anyway, it's neat to see the different varieties of poems here.
Poor Dal... there seems to be a lot of focus by all of us, on her pout! Laughing

I feel like I'm getting a real refresher course in types of poetry.  I probably haven't seen some of these since school, which was a long time ago.

Alliecat - I can definitely see Dal as the wisest of the Groove family.

True, I felt your poem ended on a sad note.

This made me go look up types of poems, because I'm not well versed in poetry either (Mad)...  Maybe this will give people some ideas:

I've been thinking about this on and off, and haven't come up with anything I like super well, but here's this one.


As I was walking down the hall
I met a girl whose name was Dal
Her head was big, her feet were small
and when she laughed
she did not smile at all.

Though sometimes proud and often rude
she can be sweet, but never lewd.
Her face at times, can be a puzzle
is she happy or will tears fall?
But in the end it is worth the trouble
to figure out just who is Dal.

^ That's so cute! Smile   It captures her personality well.


An acrostic haiku...?

Don't think that you can
Avoid our magic; we will
Lure more Dals to you.

..
Wish I'd thought to look up poetry types earlier.  Well, let's have a flurry of poems for the last couple days of the month Smile

"A cinquain poem is a verse of five lines that do not rhyme. The cinquain poem was created by Adelaide Crapsey.
A cinquain consists of five unrhymed lines.  Each line has a set number of syllables:
Line 1: 2 syllables
Line 2: 4 syllables
Line 3: 6 syllables
Line 4: 8 syllables
Line 5: 2 syllables"

...

Dal dolls
Mysterious
Hide their thoughts, rarely smile
They'll win you over in spite of
Yourself.

Erm, yes... I think Roxann & Penny conspired to mess with my mind, as well as the rest of the growing mini army. Under that goofy hat, Ika Musume appears to be quite cute. And maybe almost smiling. I don't usually grab dolls on a whim, but she was on sale... Hoping she arrives safely from Japan.
