    Grant Hayes, a fascinating and incredibly talented Australian poet who collaborated with me to create a new poetic form called the ha’sonnet. Ha’sonnets are essentially half of a sonnet the basic form of which is seven lines of four syllables each with a volta and a climax in the optional rhyme scheme of A,B,A,B,C,C,DD.

    Dear Mr. M Henry
    please outline the
    definition of a Ha'sonnet.
    I'm sure Muttado has told
    me, but my record of it is gone.

    Touché, my man,
    you make a point.
    Perhaps a plan
    to find a joint
    without the wine
    would still do fine.
    High class this lass.

    Use Charm Not Smarm

    Why do you think
    that you should go
    woo them with drink?
    Don’t sink so low!
    I can see why
    she said good-bye
    if this means bliss

    Sorry I seem to be hitting this from a different angle. :-)

    Don’t Cry For Me

    I didn’t call...
    Why should you care?
    For after all
    you were not there
    whenever I
    wanted to try!
    You slept. I wept.

    You wanted dialogue for the story ;-)

    I have no doubt
    You'll woo her sweet
    So take her out
    and clinch the feat
    (with booze involved
    your problem's solved).
    Slow sips - loose lips.

    I should not pen
    such daring stuff.
    I'll think again
    and add more fluff.
    Though liquor works
    erasing quirks,
    words too, can woo.


    With silver tongue
    (MHenry style)
    you'll not get hung
    up for awhile
    Ha'sonnet flair
    and debonair...
    Best luck, young buck!


    So shall we just keep this one going then - and invite all to join in the fun?

    I'm moving on
    I need fresh blood
    The sting is gone
    I ain't no dud
    Find a winner
    Buy her dinner
    fine wine she's mine

    I'm glad you're having fun, RLW! Maybe you can recruit some more ha'sonneters!

    I hope your bum
    did not get bruised
    on landing there,
    in romance used.
    Do not long fret -
    you'll find 'em yet -
    dry tears - switch gears!



    You make this fun for me, you know, MHenry ? We ought to start a dialogue/story and see how long different poets in the zone can keep it going - ha'sonnet style!

    Teary, but with a workman's boot
    steeled, the door can't crush your metric foot.

    started a topic I nearly fell - ha'sonnet

    I nearly fell - ha'sonnet

    I nearly fell
    Out of my chair
    When I heard tell
    You were still there
    You never called
    I sat and bawled
    Poor me, dreary
Working...
