New Forms (10): Folding Mirror Poetry (i)

Background to the Folding Mirror Poem form ...  

Dr Marc Latham, the creator of this form, has been experimenting with it now for some years. You can read more on his Folding Mirror Poetry site here.

The form features in The Book of Forms: A Handbook of Poetics Including Odd and Invented Forms by Professor Lewis Putnam Turco. The Book of Forms, now in its 4th edition, is published by the University Press of New England.

My published example: 

My poem, 'Thalatta, Thalatta', features in the book and on Marc's site. It has just been paired with a magnificent photograph by Adel Gorgy on the Immagine & Poesia site here, developed by Lidia Chiarelli.
