Saturday Snapshot is hosted by Alyce of At Home With Books.
I'm taking an eCourse in Modern Poetry through the University of Pennsylvania. One of our assignments is to write a mesostic, a postmodern poetic form, invented by John Cage or do one of Bernadette Mayer's writing experiments.
This is my first attempt of writing mesostic.
Mesostic poem adapted from The New Spirit, one of the poems in Three Poems by John Ashbery
this siDe of air
turning yourSelf as a leaf
drink the conFusion
samPle that other
to be your bReath
shAped in the new merging
insiDe each other
where the rIver pours into the sea
paSt the ideal rhythm
