Ever written a sestina? A double sestina? How about a twin sestina? (a twin is instead of just the 6 end-words, you also have 6 mid-words all of which revolve in a set pattern.) The final tercet has all 12 words in 3 lines.
39 lines just took me about 5 hours to write! I am really happy with it because I was able to layer in multiple meanings of the words I chose as well as a running thread metaphor. Brain is pretty much fried, but I am excited!
If anyone should like to read it and even write a short review, I promise to reward same handsomely!

So -have you ever written something that makes you sit back afterward and feel so excited, so well, almost giddy? I'd been dealing with a situation of late, thinking a lot about it and was edging on coming up with what I truly needed to do. Was not happy about it, but. Right thing and all that even if I wasn't 100% giving up. Still had steps away to take. Didn't realize that I had come to the conclusion until my muse sat me down and said, "Here. Now. You type; I'll dictate."
So I did and surprised myself, I guess. Just really happy with the first poem I wrote this morning.
Might you take a peek? I know, I know, it is a little on the long side ... but....
