INFORMATION
Gemini. ENTP. My go-to genre is 5-7-5 & Haiku. I am exploring Tanka, Senryu, and Katauta. My poems seem limited to few words and only 31 syllables or less.

In 2017, I published "Animals Become Chatty." This children's alphabet-alliteration-picture e-book is available for purchase at Amazon books. Ideally, it will appeal to children from 2 to 9 years of age. Check it out; it may give you ideas for your own poems with animals or alliterations..
