April Is National Poetry Month - a challenge awaits
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.
Loose loess lifts
Sifts sways swept
Weathered wind water
God's gifts guaranteed
