Poetry Stretch Results - Rhymed Couplets

The most recent poetry stretch asked folks to write rhymed couplets in iambic pentameter. Here's what a few creative people came up with.
sister AE at Having Writ shares a sonnet she wrote for her Dad entitled I'm an Artist. Since she was thinking in couplets, she also wrote a poem called Dear Editor.

Laura Purdie Salas turned her couplets into The Pencil's Plight.

Tiel Aisha Ansari of Knocking From Inside shares a story poem (read the news article first!) called The Fish's Tale.
It's never too late if you want to stretch with us. Create your own poem and drop me a line. Then I'll add your work to the list.

  1. Ooh, and Bob S. wrote a fantastic response to the Pencil's Plight in the comments that day. Check it out!

    And I just realized, I guess we were supposed to do non-related rhyming couplets. Like 2 or 3 different couplets on different topics. Ahem. I tend to get a little carried away:>)
