Circles

Well, I had fun playing around with online tools and doing this one. Thank you, Peter. for hosting this one.

Here’s the pantoum I wrote..

not going anywhere’s an art
just going round in circles
…but worlds are what they are
for they go around in cycles

just going round in circles
manipulate eyes to see, agree
for they go around in cycles
trick them to see miracles

manipulate eyes to see, agree
sunlight swamps your world
trick them to see miracles
where actually it just trickles

sunlight swamps your world

not going anywhere’s an art

where actually it just trickles

…but worlds are what they are

I generated a circular word cloud to get a shape poem, but it’s not a poem at all. Sharing just for fun 🙂

  1. A lovely pantoum (it’s a popular form this evening) – and some lovely wry word play – ‘tricked’ and ‘trickles’, ‘circles’, ‘cycles’ ‘miracles’ – and I so like what you’ve done with the extended spacing in the last stanza – giving each line its own air – as if after all the repetition, here’s the conclusions. Super piece.
