I heard about dekazz on Facebook via Rachel Bagby and loved it pretty much from the get. I’ve returned to the form on and off in the months since learning about it, and thought to share some dekazz poems I wrote while at Omega last week.

I can’t say if they’re good or bad. I can say that they’re the result of honest effort and a desire to capture something of what I was seeing and feeling.

morning
gratitude
heart opening wide

this cherry
the last one!
unsatisfying

sharing
small brolly
soaked with rain and joy
