A while back I was asked to write a poem for The Syllabary project. To be honest, I’m still not sure how to explain this thing but, basically, there are hundreds of syllables. Each syllable has a word or multiple words which can be made out of it. Poets then write a poem using all the words for the syllable they were given. By way of example – I was given the syllable FiP which can only make one word – FLIP. So, I wrote a poem which contained the word “Flip”.
Now, if you are confused – check out Cleikit site and if you spin the wheel around you can find my poem – titled “Whiff of Winter”. My voice shall be on it shortly.
Also, Peter McCarey is looking to open the project up and may be willing to give YOU (yes you!) a syllable to work with and will publish it along side mine and others. See the site to contact him!
Our friend Aiko explained all of this already on her blog in a much clearer and more interesting fashion. (Also, I stole the above pic from her site. Sue me!) So go there if you want more details.
