Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub-MTB: Two by Two
(posted by Laura Bloomsbury)

"And so for today’s poetry prompt it’s all about couples, twos, in other words couplets!"

1. The Cote – a poem of uneven couplets attributed to John Schroeder. L1 being a single imperative verb, L2 is a glossing or expansion of L1. Rhyme and meter is of your own choosing. More info here

 For example:

Mix and blend, enjoy the place

Chance upon receptive face

Here are my attempts:

Co-joining independence

Sweet dreams of fancy

Each person allowed their own view

Your eyes hypnotize me


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.

    Lush words, emotions ~~ an elegant simplicity, Sara. I tried, honestly I did, to come up with something .. my little brain just wouldn’t work. (my heart is heavy for you after reading the comment you left on my Lullaby poem.)


  3. I too love your last couplet, Sara! 💙
