This month's challenge was to write in the form of the etheree. An etheree is a poem of ten lines in which each line contains one more syllable than the last. Beginning with one syllable and ending with ten, this unrhymed form is named for its creator, 20th-century American poet Etheree Taylor Armstrong.
Would you like to try the next challenge? Next month we are writing in the style of Neruda. Pick a poem you like and use it as inspiration for a poem of your own. We are still working on the theme of transformation, so perhaps you can squeeze this into your poem. We hope you'll join us. Are you in? Good! You’ve got a month to craft your creation(s), then share your offering with the rest of us on April 28th in a post and/or on social media with the tag #PoetryPals. We look forward to reading your poems!
I hope you'll take some time to check out all the wonderful poetic things being shared and collected today by Mary Lee Hahn at A(nother) Year of Reading. Happy poetry Friday, friends!
