Two AI Micro Poems

Mist – A Haiku

translucent dawning
a light, flimsy mist swallows
pieces of old cardboard

Granite – A Didactic Cinquain

impervious, grey
stand, shine, survive
symbolising all things unweathered

It’s Thursday and we’re Meeting the Bar over at the dVerse Poets Pub with Björn. He invites us to experiment with artificial intelligence in writing poetry, and has shared some sites that we can use. He says we are free to choose our tools and wants us to edit the poem and/or mix it with our own words.

I tried a few of the AI sites, with a variety of forms and words, and the poems they produce are very formulaic, often make no sense, and will need a lot of edits.

Here are two micro poems created using AI. They seem to work better.

    1. I think it is the first one Bjorn suggested in his email. To be honest, I was just noodling about. I didn’t realise we had to include the original AI poem or mention the poets we chose either. I admit, it wasn’t really my cup of tea.

  1. I can’t decide, which is worse, the AI’s poetry or its maths. I think in terms of composition it must have been winging it.
    The mist swallowing pieces of old cardboard made me laugh actually, it’s such a daft (and funny) image. So it wasn’t all in vain 🙂
