So, here’s the deal: Every now and then, I will choose a random poetic form and try it out, see if I like it. Just so we’re clear, I will attempt to do every kind of poetic form — from the seemingly simple to the astoundingly outlandish.

To be honest, I’m not entirely sure what I’m doing, either. I’ve always loved poetic forms. (Trust me. It’s more of a curse than a talent, really.) I’d just given up on my old blog, as I didn’t feel it was leading to anywhere and had become more of a burden than a means of recreation, when I began exploring poetry once again. I fell in love with various forms — rondelets, sestinas, shadorma. And voila! Poeformology was conceived out of that:

Poeformology (n.) — An in-depth study on different poetic forms and an indulgence of oneself therein.

About two weeks into planning and outlining what I would be doing in this project, I realized there were fewer poetic forms than I’d originally thought, and it disillusioned me to push through with a project that wouldn’t keep me busy for long. And then I thought, why not make my own poetic forms?

That’s where Applied Poeformology comes in.

And, fear not, I do write free-form, free-verse poetry. It’s just that I like them so much, I keep them for the poetry journals and magazines. :D
