Over at Writing 201, we have to create a poem about our hero(ine) using a ballad, anaphora, and epistrophe
Introduced to her books one late Spring,
In 2006 I read Fledgling,
Blood, sex, and vamps Oh my, oh me!
A stellar sci-fi fantasy
I wonder if she’s in Xenogenesis
Living out her work
A Brown skinned Blood Child
Breaking the fate of fiction
You’ve changed what I read,
You inspire what I write
You are a parable that sows
A parable that has flown..
*I tried my hardest with this ballad and since I knew I could break a few rules, I figured hey- Octavia’s worth it.
