I've always have a love of poetry, from The Canterbury Tales through to more recent works. There's just something about the words tripping off your tongue, of telling a story through a whole different way of communication.
In the last few years I've found the world of science-fiction poetry - scifaiku, to be precise. Using the haiku form to tell a short, snappy story in three lines is a challenge.
Other types of poetry offer wonderful ways to explore ideas and concepts. From triolets to Fibonacci to plain old rhyming verse it's a whole different way to spin a tale.
Recently I put together a small chapbook of my poetic works, published and unpublished, under the title of Echoes of Red. It's available on Amazon and Smashwords for only a dollar.
Here's a sample of some of my work:
zombie shopping mall
she looks with one eye
she is always on the hunt
for a good bargain, of course.
