A Little of This and a Little of That

I love a challenge. Today I took a writing prompt from Writer’s Digest and experimented with some of the things I have been reading about in the Portable MFA…strong words at the end of a line that catch the reader’s eye…rhyming or rapping poems similar to June Jordan.

The writer’s prompt was to write about a hero or heroine. I decided not to write this about a specific person, instead I picked a character trait that reminded me of a heroine.


Courage Haiku

her strength prevails
more so than the song
of the nightingales

What are some elements that you use when writing a poem?

Just curious, do you like knowing my thought process about each poem? Or, do you prefer to read the poem and enjoy the mystery?
