My pal Sal (author/poet Salvatore Buttaci) has created a new four-line, seventeen-syllable poetic form I would like to share with you. On his blog, Sal's Place, specific guidelines are given for Sal's PUN-KU. What it boils down to is this:
Line 1~ 4 syllables- a
Line 2~ 5 syllables- b
Line 3~ 4 syllables- c
Line 4~ 4 syllables- c
As you can tell by the name, the poem contains a pun on one or two words in the poem, and the subject matter touches upon human nature. The title is one or two words.
Here's mine. It was quite a challenge! What do you think?
an idol mind
bored and critical
Have fun with your PUN-KU and please do share.
