One Stanza Poem O184

Reunions in 2016 –
Many there have been –
Some were by chance –
Others were by plans –
Still others were plans
Afforded by chance –
Most were real –
But some were virtual –
Waiting to become real

Notes to this poem…

I just recently started a daily theme Facebook status for the rest of 2016. I would choose a song that said something about a theme of my year of 2016, and explain it with a little bit of text. Reunions were one of my 2016 themes so I picked Reunited by Peaches & Herbs, even though it’s a love song and none of my reunions were romantic. 🙂

I won’t be writing poems about every theme, but here are a few others I have or will be posting.

The O-series of poems are one stanza poems composed before I got onto writing haiku and tanka, and short poetry while in action or traveling by select means like plane or ferry. These poems are 3-9 lines long with at least one rhyming couplet, and not of the short forms just mentioned. For the sake of elegance, I just called the collection One.
