Thanks for visiting ~ comments welcome ~ Love BRIAN


This is called a Form Poem in which the shape of the poem

relates to the subject of the poem.  This is also a Dynamic

Form Poem because if you rotate it clockwise through 180

degrees (as one does an Hour Glass) it still reads correctly.

OK the words are "upside down" ~ BUT so is the HOUR GLASS !

            Great stuff Brian I really like this - something else for me to have a go at - It's not you in photo is it?

            • BRIAN & ANGELA

              Thanks for your comment MICHAEL ~ I always try to push the boundaries ! I went to an all boys school so in the MIKADO (in the First Form) I had to be one of the "Three Little Girls from School" but even them my figure was never that good ! Only in BRAZIL does one meet Girls that shapely ! Yours BRIAN

                Go on I bet you enjoyed it - at least you were one of the little girls - you could have been Katisha but perhaps you didn't fancy Nanki Poo (spelling ? )

                      Very good structure to this poem. I'd never seen a poem like this before. Fabulous job! Always coming up with new types of poems. Hugs-Christina

                      • BRIAN & ANGELA

                        Thanks CHRIS ~ pleased you enjoyed it ! You will find FORM POEMS in magazines etc. You need to be able to centre your poem to generate a shape such as an HOUR GLASS you have to chose your words carefully and of course if you get the top right and then the waist (see photo !) then the "bottom" forms naturally if you reverse it ~ EASY ! By thinking outside the POETIC BOX ~ I try to keep MPS on its toes ! Hour Glass Hugs ~ BRIAN

                            I love this concert form poetry. ... The mirroring of the words add up to the cuteness of this

                            • BRIAN & ANGELA

                              Thanks GEL ~pleased you liked it ! By mirroring the two parts of the hour glass are the same ! We can all learn from each other om MPS ~ Hugs BRIAN
