Requiem--By Brian Strand--England

Requiem

nothing..
then silence,
sad faces!
then tears
emotion..
regret..
then pain

(a verbless poem)

Brian Strand has created short poetic forms including 'broken monoku' (a haiku variation) and 'footle' (a trochaic monometer with witty, topical, etc themes) and Captioned Cartoon, an Ekphrasis combining his art and poetic interests. He has published a seven kindle ebook series Poetic forms; A Strand of Verse; My Choice Strand Verse; A Strand Guide; Christianity Explained; A Strand critique; and Captioned Cartoon Ekphrasis. Brian has written nearly 200 Amazon reviews and is a Wiki poetry and art editor.

  2. Enjoyed your piece very much. I have volunteered as March guest editor, a verbless challenge or TIEN style adverbless poem could be entertained? Thanks again for your piece, Ralph.
