I’m dedicating the last half of August to work using homonyms. I find that homonyms are fun in making a piece of work sound the same but have a different meaning. Homonyms help me to think outside the box and get creative with meaning.
As an extra challenge, I’ve created a Homophonous poetry form. This is a three-stanza poem where a set of homonyms are used throughout. The first form of the words is used in the first stanza, the second form in the second stanza and a mix of all forms are used in the last stanza stanza.
Here is my first creation: Peek through a hole to discover, Know-not what may come into your sight. Fill the hole with what you may. Remain curious, continue to peek. When you feel whole, you have reached your peak, Take time to review the many sites passed. To become whole, you've gathered much. Don't remain in your peak, explore more sites In which way can a hole become whole? How many peeks will it take to reach my peak? After all the sites, will my values remain in sight?
