Hummingbird in a Hurricane

He’s a puppy dog in a snowstorm,
Flurries flying fast and warm,
Every light in the house is on,
Garden gnomes out on the lawn,
Blanket fresh from out the dryer,
Sparks leaping from open fire,
Interrupts the daily grind–
Energetic, meek and kind.

      Wow, you are so kind–I’m glad you enjoyed this as I always enjoy your poems. I think the best way to learn form is to experiment. Look up poetry forms and just try your hand at them–I think you might be surprised to find that some fit really well. Others you might despise. For me, forms often help me to take what I want to say and to say it differently–still conveying the same meaning, but twisting it in a way that gives it more, well…form (and function, perhaps), more beauty, more depth. It forces me to take the scenic route. 🙂
