But I wrote one anyway.
This week’s poetry stretch at The Miss Rumphius Effect involves writing a cardinal ideogram poem. I ditched the “cardinal” (numerical) aspect and used letters instead. This type of poem involves looking at the shape of numbers or letters and incorporating the evoked images into corresponding lines of poetry. For example, in my poem, “Thunderstorm,” below, the T brought to mind a lightning bolt, the H a window pane, etc.
The ideogram really did make me stretch. So I guess that’s good.
