Challege #3: The Poetry Challenge
Poetry is a way of exploring the deeper essence of the human (and lace) selves, what it is that makes us human (or lace, as the case may be). Poetry can take many forms, from the classical dactylic hexameter to the haiku to free verse; it can rhyme or not rhyme; it can be written in the first, second, or third person. What all forms of poetry have in common is their ability to evoke a deep sentiment and emotion.
Your challenge: One poem, written by, for, or about your lace teammate posted to your blog (or photohosting account) by midnight EDT (UTC -4:00), July 2.
Hmmm. Poetry? They want me to be deep? Well, alright.
There once was a shawl knit of cotton
The pattern was called Lotus Blossom
The knitting went fast
Only two weeks had passed
And my teammate now points to my bottom
(you can see more photos of the shawl here)
Think that evokes enough deep sentiment and emotion?
