Little Care

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub, MTB:  Wordplay (posted by Grace)

"Write a poem using word-play techniques as described."

"Word play, also written as wordplay, word-play, or a play on words, is when a writer experiments with the sound, meaning, and/or construction of words to produce new and interesting meanings. In other words, the writer is twisting language to say something unexpected, with the intent of entertaining or provoking the reader."

Wordplay definition: Experimentation with the sounds, definitions, and/or constructions of words to produce new and interesting meanings.

The haunt of whale-deaths
stays with me. Beautiful
monsters of the sea
left lifeless on 
the shore.  Animaled
earth needs to be
taken seriously.  We
have not learned to
share, and respect
other forms of life.
Even birded woods 
can change to silence.
Aware yourselves
of your surroundings.

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.
