A Modicum of James

Secret Tidepools

Secrets shine
out of the cay.
Sun-pressed starfish
hold their treasures -
tidepool's gold.



This form is called a modicum, and was created by King... errr, Sir James of The Endless Saga

    But as I told Vickie:

    you see, although not stated in the criteria, only implied by example, a modicum is a continuous stream, rather than broken up by sentences.

  7. An interesting idea and a little like the sedoka and the tanka. I enjoyed the flow of this one and the clarity of the images.
