The short poems (some of which are monorhyme quatrains) exhibited in this special post pay homage to rhyming schemes and rhythmic devices as well as symmetry, compatibility, calligraphy, styling, designing, graphics and animations, all of which are in the service of the simultaneous presentation of art and poetry, both texturally and pictorially.

For example, in the third line of both stanzas of SoundEagle🦅’s poem displayed above, “Rein” rather than “Reign” is technically more appropriate, as explained in a blog post of the Oxford Dictionaries entitled “Rein or reign?”, not to mention that “Reign” is intransitive as a verb. Nevertheless, the blog post also states: “There’s obviously a strong tendency in our minds to wish to associate the phrase free rein with allowing a person the freedom of power that some rulers formerly wielded when reigning over their oppressed subjects: I can see the somewhat tenuous logic in this.” Aside from that, SoundEagle🦅 has chosen to use “Reign” instead of “Rein” in the poem for the following reasons:

  1. To deploy or exploit the close connections and ambiguities between the words “Reign” and “Rein” in their spellings, pronunciations, connotations and denotations with respect to the subject matters and stylistic delivery of the poem.
  2. To convey the poem more on linguistic imports and figurative potentials rather than literal meanings.
  3. Unlike the Horse🐎 (of the Gothic Knight), SoundEagle🦅 is never (meant, fit or compelled) to be reined in or ridden on, with or without a rein.
  4. SoundEagle🦅 prefers the word “Reign” as it feels more “Regal”. Without the letter g, “Regal” loses its magic and becomes “Real” just as “Reign” turns into a rather drab “Rein”, which is meant for the Horse🐎, not for a noble being or entity like SoundEagle🦅 or the Unicorn🦄.
  5. “Reign” is more interesting than “Rein” since the former’s letter g is the only alphabet protruding downwards, much like the letter p in the word “Usurp” from the preceding line of the poem. In other words, “Reign” and “Usurp” have higher compatibility with respect to calligraphy.
  6. Another compatibility (as well as symmetry) is also at play to the extent that SoundEagle🦅 would like to start each of the two inner lines of the first stanza with a verb comprising five letters. “Reign” and “Usurp” both have five. “Rein” has only four.

ೋღஜஇ Notes இஜღೋ

Dear Readers,

In general, SoundEagle🦅’s poems reveal a humanity and sensitive spirit with certain tenderness coloured by various intensities of yearning and understanding.

Regardless of length and form, SoundEagle🦅 typically composes mainly rhyming poems, often with end rhymes, internal rhymes, alliterations, assonances, consonances, sibilances as well as rhythmic devices, syllabic schemes, musical patterns, and other subtle or overt features. This predilection towards rhyming poems is not in any way suggesting or implying that free-form poems are not worthy of our reading and writing, as long as we bear in mind that many of the free verses that we routinely encounter can be too unstructured and ad hoc, somewhat rough and ready or crude but effective, their form (or lack thereof) even widely abused, exploited or misunderstood by those who lack the required imagination and discipline to achieve or maintain poetic excellence, irrespective of the extent to which such poems have been or are meant to be emancipated from the tyranny of rhymes and the shackle of metered lines.

In other words, SoundEagle🦅 can be regarded as a neo-formalist cum experimentalist poet preferring to express in form and metre rather than free verse, whilst also appreciating the sound and import of words as well as the look and feel of artful displays without being unnecessarily encumbered by observing rigid rules and structures to the detriment of fostering creativity and innovation.

Beyond composing poems featuring rhyme, assonance and alliteration in various imaginative ways to impart appealing musical tenor and lyrical expression to our poetic oeuvre, we may also consider the use of rhythmic schemes, syllabic patterns and other numeric properties and calligraphic considerations, plus the additional creativity and presentational fecundity of having our poems combined with or incorporated into art, calligraphy, graphics, illustrations, animations, musical compositions and multimedia, an example of which is provided by the post entitled 🎼🎹—THE—🎹—LAST—🎹—RAG—🎹🎵🎶.

Longer and more sophisticated examples include the following:

In any case, readers are advised that they should keep writing poems so that they may continue to improve and satisfy themselves, never mind too much what others might think of their poems. After all, poetry is always a subjective art and caters to different people and purposes. One person’s poem could be another person’s poison.

Please be informed that many of SoundEagle🦅’s multimedia posts will take a while to load completely, and will benefit from being viewed on a large screen of a desktop and laptop computer, since those lengthy multimedia posts and SoundEagle🦅’s blog could be too powerful and feature-rich for iPad, iPhone, tablet or other portable devices to handle properly or adequately.

      SoundEagle🦅 would like to thank you for your quoting Albert Einstein, who inspired us to confer on others the same measure of “kindness, beauty and truth” that he received.

      Indeed, may you continue to feel, perceive and discover plenty of “kindness, beauty and truth” whenever you visit and make yourself comfortable at SoundEagle🦅’s intellectual home, sonic nest, musical den and artistic eyrie.

      A brand-new animation containing a flying sea eagle and a swimming sea turtle has just been added, along with another animation featuring rising heart-shaped bubbles — all waiting to be discovered. You are hereby invited to revisit and savour this new animation to your heart’s content!

  11. Wonderfully creative work here, SoundEagle, and the updates on this page are sublime. I love learning about the genesis of creative ideas, so this post is fascinating. I agree with so much of what you’ve written here with regards to how you approach poetry. I prefer structured poetry as well, although I enjoy free-verse’s intensity and urgency and immediacy. Both forms certainly have their places, but personally, I’m more fond of structured poetry. I like to create an armature upon which I can layer the muscles, tissues, and skin to create a living, breathing poem. That foundation holds the entirety of the poem together. The first thing I do when I read someone’s poetry is look for structure of some sort. It’s akin to treasure-hunting, I suppose, when I can find a coherent structure buried within the words. 🙂 Also, I completely agree that word choice should not only depend on meaning, but also tone, sound, appearance, and how it fits within the line, stanza and overall poem. There’s a lot that goes into selecting the proper word, which makes poetry writing immensely satisfying for me.

    Your visual presentation of your work is stunning and shows a deep dedication to your art. Much respect, my friend!

    On a somewhat humorous and endearing side note, two of the most memorable and beloved animal companions I’ve had in my lifetime were a female cockatiel and a tiny slider turtle. It may not be the same as an eagle and a sea turtle, but I couldn’t help but make that connection while reading this piece. It’s just another example of how poetry can resonate with readers in completely unexpected ways. 🙂

    • Dear Michael,

      You are indeed entitled to be very pleased with your positive influence on SoundEagle🦅, who, upon your esteemed visit and encouragement, has been spurred to publish this new and even more feature-packed version of an earlier post.

      It is ostensibly knowledgeable and astute of you to have generously allowed or shown yourself to be in unfettered assessment and holistic appreciation of SoundEagle🦅’s poetry and artistry, now also bolstered here by sophisticated graphics and animations as well as an original musical composition, which will automatically commence playing when it is visited and viewed in situ.

      Regarding the issue “that word choice should not only depend on meaning, but also tone, sound, appearance, and how it fits within the line, stanza and overall poem”, you might be somewhat surprised to learn that there are those who were all too eager to consign my using “Reign” instead of “Rein” as an inadmissible mistake in the two quatrains; and they may still not be fully convinced even after reading the explanations provided. That we see eye to eye here is a terrific start and a testament to the strength of your holistic and open-minded approach to understanding creative writing in the medium of poetry.

      As has been intimated on 14 August 2022 in a comment submitted to your blog post entitled ““It’s Not Lost” chosen for collaborative Poetry Partners project at The Skeptic’s Kaddish”, you are at complete liberty to collaborate with SoundEagle🦅 should you be tempted to make a big splash in SoundEagle🦅’s intellectual home, sonic nest, musical den and artistic eyrie:

      Dear Mike,

      Yet another way to collaborate is to compose a poem for someone else’s blog post. If you would like to do so for one or any number of my posts, simply submit your poem(s) as a comment to the respective comment section(s) of your chosen post(s) on my blog. I shall then perform some “magic” so that your collaborative poem(s) will be featured in my respective post(s) with bespoke stylings (and perhaps even illustrations and/or animations). You can then reblog each of these posts (using the “Reblog” button available in the post) to show your followers and readers your fine poetry and how your poems have been incorporated by me.

      Thank you for your support and rapport. Happy mid-August to you and your family! Wishing you a wonderfully productive week doing, enjoying or blogging whatever that satisfies you the most, including writing more poems to your own satisfaction, both aesthetically and intellectually!

      Since your previous visit, there is yet another pleasant surprise awaiting your discovering. It is a brand-new animation that contains a flying sea eagle and a swimming sea turtle. You are hereby invited to revisit and savour this new animation in memory of your tiny slider turtle. There is also another animation featuring rising heart-shaped bubbles alongside swirls of gypsy delight. Please enjoy!
