Book of Riddlu : Metaphorical Skipping Stones (Paperback) (John Reibetanz)
about this item
These "riddlu" are a lighthearted but heartfelt attempt to combine two poetic forms that demand extreme concision and that value the suggestive power of metaphor: the riddle and the haiku. ... Both have different strengths - the quick thinking of the riddle (a lifesaver for Bilbo Baggins), the serious looking of the haiku. My "riddlu" tries to lighten the haiku's seriousness while lending some of its intuitive weight to the riddle, producing little triads of lines that glance across metaphorical waters like skipped stones.
