      1. It was in you all this time……i find it makes it more exciting to say what i need to say in different ‘languages’… or forms. You’ll be great at a Nonet. ( that’s the one i did for ‘In The End’)…… and watching your page for more Elfje’s, sedoka’s, tanka’s , haiku etc πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚

      2. Your wife is correct. It really does magnify your voice. I used to write my poems as normal then fit them into the different forms. Now, it looks like I can just about start off in the form I want.
        I find the Elfje rather easy- just word counts. Oh one more thing- just join one of the challenges out there like Colleen’s Poetry Challenge…. it’ll spur you on- and you gets lots of support. πŸ™‚
