Every so often children throwing tantrums Catch parent faces, bracing fallen sourness Where outlines wrinkle rosy outlook sadly Raisins having pits
Read CC's blog at Poetry Soup, describing sapphic stanza with a jux. I found that form interesting, spent hours marveling and researching. I attempted my first one. Not sure if this is correct-11/11/11/5. In this poem I wrote of a parent coping with a child's misbehavior. The effect of such leaving a wrinkled image much like a raisen on the parents face with the juxtaposition at the end of the poem, which is a play on words, too, raisens/raising.
