Third assignment from Writing 201: Poetry
Day 3: Skin, Prose Poetry, Internal Rhyme
Perceiving Behind the Feather
It’s already 10 pm but I can’t decide what to write about the “skin”. Ideas side by side but it all rambling inside. Either I should write the man who had wrinkles over his body or the sprinkles of tears over the skin of a broken hearted buddy. This humble prose of mine doesn’t need a pause. Keep on going even there were lots of interrupting. And now let’s begin the prose poetry about the skin; the color of the feather cannot identify the personality of the owner. Sometimes it viciously decisive if you don’t perceive the inner side of what has hides. That feather can’t even define your name. It’s what in your heart and not from the color you’ve got!
At last! It’s done. This is another achievement which is worth to celebrate. 😀 .

Terms introduced by Writing 102: Poetry.
Check Poetry Foundation for more poetic terms.
- Prose poetry– any piece of verse written using the normal typography of prose, while style maintaining elements of poetry, like rhythm, imagery, etc.
- Internal Rhyme – the poetic device on offer for your exploration today — should appeal to all poets. It adds a level of sonic complexity and playfulness without calling too much attention to itself the way end rhymes (i.e. rhymes appearing at the end of verses) do.
- Acrostic – A poem in which the first letter of each line spells out a word, name, or phrase when read vertically. See Lewis Carroll’s “A Boat beneath a Sunny Sky.”
- Simile – A comparison (see Metaphor) made with “as,” “like,” or “than.” In “A Red, Red Rose,”
- Haiku– A traditional Japanese form, now popular around the world. Normally (but not necessarily) composed of three lines of verse containing five, seven, and five syllables, respectively.
- Alliteration– The repetition of initial stressed, consonant sounds in a series of words within a phrase or verse line. Alliteration need not reuse all initial consonants; “pizza” and “place” alliterate. Example: “We saw the sea sound sing, we heard the salt sheet tell,” from Dylan Thomas’s “Lie Still, Sleep Becalmed.” Browse poems with alliteration.
