April Is National Poetry Month - a challenge awaits

Advertisement

With so many differing poetic forms to choose from, it can be intimidating to decide which form best suits your writing style. Don't be afraid to experiment. Poetry is lyric with its creators voice as instrument. And, your poem is only as profound as the person reading it.

Examine the different poetic styles - topics are your design - so choose a rhymed verse, whimsey, free verse or Haiku, just to 'thine own self be true".

Challenge for today: write a poem with each line beginning with the same letter.

Example:

Kansas

Loose loess lifts

Sifts sways swept

Weathered wind water

God's gifts guaranteed
