True Lies (Vingt et Un)
Every poem has a kernel
of truth around which is wrapped
pieces of reality.[Vingt et Un is a three-line, unrhymed poem of 7 syllables per line.]
by CRAFTY KEN
Like it Larry for its simplicity, and, kernel truth revealed in the perfect 21 syllables!
Very nice work.
by Larry Chamberlin
For me, the power of poetry is the reconstruction of truth in ways that don’t actually exist in the real world but are relatable.
by CJ Maleney
Every lie also has a kernel of truth.
Always trust a liar. For you can trust him to lie. Distrust the honest because they will never be honest about their lies.
Not my words but something I read once
Love to see a new form, especially one that isn't either a Rondeau or Sonnet.
Whether its just my pronunciation, but I make line 1, 8 syllables.
Every (2, or three ev-er-ree depending on how you say it or where you come from)
Poem (2 Po-em) see above^
Funny thing is, I didn't start this comment out as a critique
just naturally double checked when I reached your explanation
I did consider these issues but decided that the syllables you reference are elided in normal (American) speech.
By all means I think there is far too little critical analysis in these comments and both appreciate and applaud your advice.
