Places That Make Me Smile

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 - InForm Poet
Bob and Wheel

"A short while back, Robert Lee Brewer introduced us to this simple but interestingly named form, Bob and Wheel. I thought we might explore it a bit deeper.
Here are the guidelines:"

Quintain (or five-line) stanza or poem
Rhyme scheme of ababa
First line of two to three syllables
Lines two through five have six syllables per line

In woods
I touched the bark of trees,
some smooth, some rough.  I stood
still breathing pine, longing
to remain there for good.

On sand
I watched the ocean waves
roll in, and as was planned
it tickled toes with spray.
Fun way to spend a day.  

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
