Day 20 Sound Poems over at Laura Shovan's page. We had options today-- pick a reptile from amongst a collection of sound clips. See http://macaulaylibrary.org/search?taxon=Squamata&taxon_id=10521072&taxon_rank_id=38&tab=audio for links to the clips. Who could resist the cute gecko? Not me... and neither could many of the other poets playing along.
My poem is in the form of a Welsh englyn (although not a strict adherence to form).
Gekko gecko on my wall--croak, croak--
your name an echo of your call.
Fifteen minutes, I watch you crawl.
I must learn why you never fall.
