Exciting news for the Folding Mirror form. It is the form of the week on Lewis Turco’s Odd and Invented Forms website, following its inclusion in the new version of the definitive Book of Forms. Thanks again to Lewis for using and publicising the form.
Also, thanks again to Caroline Gill, who alerted me to the above, and has been instrumental in clarifying and maintaining the form, and who features a new post about it on her Brekekekex Koax Koax blog.
FMPoetry is proud to report that Caroline Gill’s ‘Thalatta, Thalatta’ Folding Mirror poem has been published on the Immagine & Poesia website, complemented by the above Four Elements image by Adel Gorgy.
FMPoetry is proud to see two poets who have created Folding Mirror poems alongside many famous poets in an image on Lewis Turco’s Odd and Invented Forms blog. Caroline Gill and Claire Knight had Folding Mirror poems accepted for the new book of Odd and Invented Forms as examples of the Folding Mirror form.
Both poems were first featured on this site. Caroline Gill’s accepted poem was Thalatta, Thalatta; Claire Knight’s was Hourglass of Time. Thanks again to Lewis, Caroline and Claire for their creativity and time.
Here’s the image that appears on the Odd and Invented forms blog. Viewing it as a clock face, Caroline Gill is at about 5 o’ clock and Claire Knight is at about 9 o’ clock:
Today we have another powerful Folding Mirror poem by KJP Garcia, and thanks again to KJP for creating and sharing them on the above blog and here. This was first published in the Straight to Screen section of the above blog.
by KJP Garcia:
the news told new
stories of future alien
the grandchildren denied the beginning of the settlements
and wrinkled their clothes
as next show began
