Miss Rumphius has me trying something new yet again. She says, "The Handbook of Poetic Forms defines macaronic verse in this fashion.
Macaronic verse is a peculiar, rare and often comic form of poetry that sometimes borders on nonsense. It is a mixture of two (or more) languages in a poem, in which the poet usually subjects one language to the grammatical laws of another to make people laugh."
I like the way this photo made me think of surface tension and texture. I wrote a free style poem and then changed all the nouns into made up words from a fantasy language. It's kind of fun - give it a try yourself and let us know what you come up with.
