Werd Trix:  Shaped Poetics
(Concrete Poems)

This is fun word-play - trying to adequately shape the words to reflect  the subject.
I find it a creative way to change pace from the research and text of my books.

The tone of this is more in the style of the early 
"shaped poems" of George Herbert (1593-1633).

Roots and Wings

     *  wings take flight                          flight takes wings  *
        *  the spirit that soars              is a spirit that sings  *
                  *  the body may comprise the whole  *
                     *  a mind embraces  all the soul  *
                                 *  roots to enter  *
                                 *  at life's center  *
                     * to make success of humankind  *
                   *  one should  ever  feed  the mind  *
            *  deep spirit in self  fires  the  dreams to be  *
       * roots keep us warm                wings keep us free  *

Now We Are Sick

"Hush, hush, Christopher Robin

 Is saying his prayers. "

                        Hes
                     /        \                and stumping           he
Rush, rush, /            \ jumping /                       \ as /     \ dares.

Crush, crush, 
                    Master
                              Robin
                                        Has
                                              Fallen
                                                        Down-
                                                                   Stairs.
