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

Onions outofdoors, Growing, grasping, grown Holding hordes Colds, children, casseroles Tasting Delightfully delicious, delicate Soups, stir fry and stews!

Weekend weather, wild, wicked, windy Monday more mundane, milder Hoping hot happens here - happy!

Justifies Justbegintowrite

Flitting fingers flow fine

Wise wonderful words written

Instant, internal inflection

Relax, read, reflect, refresh

Sends spirit soaring

Thanks time taking

Making memories

For future fulfillment

Poetry pleasure personified

Go girl
