Writing 201 : Poetry — Silent Still Screen

I’ve signed up for Blogging U.’s Writing 201 — Poetry course in October to learn more about poetry, forms and literary devices.

Let’s buckle up and journey with me through poetryland!

Today’s theme and task is: Screen, Haiku, Alliteration

Silent Still Screen

Staring straight into,
Silent still screen hardly blink,
Streams of soft click click.

Beyond the flat screen,
Behold wonders of the world,
Within an arm’s reach,
Knowledge more than I can take,
Information overload.

A little note on practice: I’m mixing and matching up the assignment a bit. First stanza is a haiku with alliteration, followed by a tanka in second stanza with free writing.
