Alien Skull

Alien Skull

(A Whitney)

.

Big surprise,

alien skull.

Secret eyes

are fairly dull.

Hard to spot

this hidden hull.

Why was it left there to rot?

Author Notes

Using a bit of imagination, I see an alien skull here. You’ll have to look hard for the eye sockets, then it comes together with a straight line mouth at the bottom.


This poem is a Whitney.

The Whitney poem format was created by Betty Ann Whitney. This is a seven-line versed poem based on Japanese patterns with a fixed syllable format that contains

3, 4, 3, 4, 3, 4, 7 syllables respectively.


No rhyme scheme is required, but may be incorporated if desired. For this poem I did use a rhyme scheme. It is:

ababcbc.
