Speak!

(this is a mirror oddquain)

adorably cute how you
really think I care...
ruff harumph!
speak!

Ah! Communication between the sexes.. always a minefield. Thanks for trying out the first mini-challenge on Real Toads.

Egads! *clutches heart* A form poem--albeit an unknown and obscure one only used by Rumanian fortune tellers on Friday the 13th. I love it, and of course, now I have to try it myself. This is rather a dooorbell.

^^Christopher, don't "comment" on my poem with a poem of your own.

Kristen Haskell said...

communication it makes or breaks us.

undercaws said...

Clever back and forth, and a form that's new to me. Thanks for the introduction.

I think I could learn a form by Romanian gypsies ( I mean)...

Speak Shea Speak!!!

Tess Kincaid said...

Cool form here! I like!

Mama Zen said...

An oddquain, huh? There's a joke lurking around here somewhere . . .

Caty said...

now I need to get educated and research what a mirror oddquain is...Love the bottom photo!

Helen said...

Love this ~ and it's not a haiku! Oddquain ~ what an odd name! I've learned something new today.

HermanTurnip said...

I'm not sure if I should be impressed or insulted ;-)

Randy Behavior said...

I adore the condescending tone. I was gonna tease you about the Haikus and now a fucking form, but the gallery has teased you enough. :)

ccchampagne said...

This has me smiling widely! Love it! Quirky form and all it still speaks very truly of an eternal problem - how do you get a man to actually speak? *smile*

nene said...

Ouch, sweetie you don't have to yell I'm right 'hear'.

knightsheart said...

I like the form and you did it well with the words and pictures too!!!

Deborah said...

You made that look easy! Brilliant :o)

Lydia said...

You are in great form today, Shay! (Not that I have ever seen or heard of that form, so now here I go to find out more....but you'll always be my first mirror oddquain.)

Holland said...

So unlike you and yet so strong.... LOve it!

Lolamouse said...

It's probably safer to just keep quiet.

Lynn said...

Oddquain? Cool poem. :)

K9friend said...

Interesting poetic form on an ever-confounding topic!

I don't know this form--looks fun! And "Ruff harumph" is just right.

Kathy Bischoping said...

Sweet read! One of my characters was all about the pooky cuteness too!

Comuunicating the unspoken and unspeakable at times is what poets do well.....and that you are Shay a poet....this one speaks vollumes....love it! :-)

Two for one - I like it!

Mary said...

Clever! Communication can be a challenge sometime. Your poem makes that clear. Nice write.

haikulovesongs said...
