The World According to Tiff Sniff

Meandering ponderings and wonderings on the state of things.


Something new

I thought today that I might try to do
Something I've not tried, oh, since high school:
To write a piece entirely composed
In iambic pentameter. Suppose
My English teacher finds this here. Will she
Be proud, or will she most appal-led be?
Did William Shakespeare, back in the old days,
Think bloggers bored would emulate his ways?

To find the rhythm for ages preferred
By writers, poets, lovers, and the like,
And couple it with fourteen rhyming words
A sonnet to create of ancient type,

This blogger's creativity has drained,
And left her with a weekend-ready brain.

    I like the use of imambic pentameter...you're a poet and don't know it.

    Haikus are best, not
    Iambic Pentameter.
    Easier to write.

    A simple haiku:
    Beautiful yet challenging
    The world in three lines.

    Don't get me started
    I could write haikus all day
    But I'm heading home.

    One of my favorite random emails ever was a list of the new, more personal Microsoft Haiku error messages, to replace old impersonal, unhelpful ones. Two of my favorites were:

    Your file was so big.
    It might be very useful.
    But now it is gone.

    Yesterday it work'd.
    Today it is not working.
    Windows is like that.

    roses are red
    violets are blue
    way to be poetic
    go girl you!

    limerick anyone?

    There once was a blog from Tiffany
    With posts about roadside theology
    Her readers all raved
    The way she has paved
    For blogging with more creativity.
