Trying out another form of poetry called Tyburn. It's supposed to be 6 lines with the specific syllable counts of 2,2,2,2,9, and 9 respectively.

This last one isn't the correct syllable count, but I really liked the word 'viraling' [I made it up], so I wrote it anyway. They're supposed to be a commentary on the warped weather patterns we've been experiencing lately.

Thanks Sue! I learned it from Lori Sonnets, and the pic is a cone flower from my garden. Turns out I'm not the first person to think of 'viraling'. It's not in the dictionary, but I didn't think to google it. He, he, oh well.
