While working on the recent Poetry Makers interviews, I spent quite a bit of time with Avis Harley's book Fly With Poetry: An ABC of Poetry. There are several forms I want to try, but the one that has me really thinking this week is the Sonnet, or at least her bite-sized version. A bit-sized sonnet follows the rhyme scheme of a "traditional sonnet," but it's not written in iambic pentameter. Instead, each line contains only one syllable. Here's Avis' poem.
A Bite-Sized SonnetSo, the challenge is to write your own bite-sized sonnet. Leave me a note about your poem and I'll post the results here later this week.
