Kiamon never once thought on her fate Grimly she battled to push down her hate Hoping perhaps to at last find her goal Kiamon willingly gave up her soul.
…Recently I tried something new. As some of you know, I have a rather wide set of "novels in progress," none of which actually progress, much. I'm bad at these wider, longer-scale projects. So I decided to take this slightly more successful short poem-a-day concept and "hijack" it for the novel thing. I have been writing little "character-building" quatrains, where I try to encapsulate some aspect of a story's character. This is one of those. In general, don't be surprised to see the names of fictional beings begin to populate some of my poems.
A poem is like a conversation where
you hurl your words out slow and there's no end.
This is my new poem-numbering scheme. I decided I wanted the numbers to reflect the total number since I started this poem-a-day effort. So it is the sum of Nonnets + Englynion + Quatrains + Random Poems – [poems written before I started the daily challenge but got included in the earlier counts]. There may be some inaccuracy because some of the quatrains got counted as multiple quatrains despite being single “poems.” Not that all this really matters. I just… decided I wanted to do it like this, moving forward.
