A to Z Challenge Poetry

#Brevette: Stories #atozchallenge


c r e a t e s


(c) Sanch Vee @ Sanch Writes (3 April 2017)


The Brevette, created by Emily Romano consists of a subject (noun), verb, and object (noun), in this exact order. The verb should show an ongoing action. This is done by spacing out the letters in the verb. There are only three words in the poem.

This has been written for the 2017 A to Z Challenge.

    If i could add a good before poems in brackets may be! Didn’t know about Brevette forms. Dealing with haiku was bothersome enough, but i like this.

    I should try this. Haiku was never my piece of cake.

    Just 3 words? :O
    I soooo NOT like it! It’s not even a decent teaser! Kanjoosi of words is all that I can think of!
    Happy AtoZing!

    Well! that sounds like my kind of poetry! You could churn out poems left right and centre when they’re only three words long. It’s a bit like cheating at poetry 🙂

    Just 3 words but I can imagine this could be a tough task. Brevity is rather difficult, especially in poetry.

    I like this form of poetry. Good one Sanch 🙂

    This is something that would lend itself to Calligraphy! Love the concept. Thanks for the little lesson today.

    Wow! in 3 words you have poetically created a complete story! I can see i am going to be struggling with words to express how fascinated i am with what you are writing! Bravo!

    Who needs 6-word stories when you can have poetry in 3 words. Thank you for introducing me to this beauty 🙂

    The length of the brevette is deceptive. I tried to think of a cool comment to write employing this poetry form, and I’ve been staring at the comment box for more than five minutes! ?

    I must try my hand at this for my Instagram page. Will tag you when I write it! 🙂

    Oh this is so brilliant! I can imagine how tough it must have been to come up with this. I was wondering about the additional spaces in the second word, but in the end it made total sense. And so beautifully at that!

    Wow! 3 words and such wonderful poetry. Choosing just 3 words and creating such a lovely thing is indeed diffucult! I hadn’t heard of brevette before.

    I love it! Those three words are enough to intrigue me! What a wealth of anticipation there, Sanch. (Lovely photo of the book and rose!) Hugs!

    Simplest form but not so simple. Perfect example of brevity.

    My god Sanchie your research and knowledge is impeccable – this is another incredible nugget for me to learn about. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing that form. Not familiar with the Brevette. I love short forms because you have to pare down what you want to say.
    Great to meet you!

    I enjoy writing haiku (not saying I’m good, just that I like the form). This is a new one for me.
