Here it is, the first product of my latest poetic ambition. This is what has come of [livejournal.com profile] sisterperpetua's word list. It's the first time in quite a while that I've actually attempted poetry, so let me know what you think.

Holy crap, I actually managed to finish a sestina. It only took me two months of mostly sporadic effort, until today's stint of the sustained variety of effort. Not ready to post it yet, because it still exists only in handwritten form. Will post when it's typed, and possibly revised.

Lately, I've felt the return of creative impulse. However, the outlet for this has been pretty much restricted to making my cards not look exactly like the example in card-making class. I could, of course, do stampy card-making things on my own, but that often requires purchase of new materials to play with. And I'd kind of like to get back to the basic pen and paper.

So, I need a creative kick in the ass. And so, I hereby launch the Sestina Project. The way this works is you give me six words, and I then attempt to write a sestina using those words and post the results.

Have at it.
