Also, if you click on the red lettering at the top of the column, the link will take you to a page where the individual pieces are easier to read.
A quick word of explanation about Cleave Poetry: a cleave poem is a pair of poems of equal length, presented side-by-side and separated by dashes (in the case of my writings, there are two pieces that are three-wide). Each poem may be read as an individual poem, plus the pair can be read as a unified whole. So to take one of my pieces, You can read it as:
color in a world
golden rays of morning sun
lighten for midday
add gray for afternoon clouds
deepen to a midnight blue
Tanka 2 - For Nature
dawn begins afresh
deep breaths of awakening day
evening rain refreshes
all quiet in cool night air
Unified Dual Tanka - A Palette for Nature
color in a world, dawn begins afresh
golden rays of morning sun, deep breaths of awakening day
lighten for midday, shadowless noontime
add gray for afternoon clouds, evening rain refreshes
deepen to a midnight blue, all quiet in cool night air
My goal with these when I wrote them was to have the two individual poems seem unrelated, or at least minimally related, and then have the combined piece create a third theme different from the other two. By the way, since my initial dual pieces were all in the Tanka form, I called them SuperTanka.
