N is for No!


Did you know that there are over 55 different types or styles of poetry. I have a habit of being “trapped” in one or two styles. One form or style is called:

ABC
A poem that has five lines and creates a mood, picture, or feeling. Lines 1 through 4 are made up of words, phrases or clauses while the first word of each line is in alphabetical order. Line 5 is one sentence long and begins with any letter.

Today's poem for the letter "N" is an ABC poem about the word "no." Hope you appreciate and comment! Thanks! Remember, don't say "no!"

Always hearing “no” can be disconcerting
Before one says no, think before blurting
Caustic negativity that remains in the air
Devising means of disharmony and fare
So, don’t say no!
