Happy Poetry Friday! Welcome, everyone! (Wondering what Poetry Friday is? Click here.)
Well, I feel guilty even posting this. Not only did I NOT get to the live write with my poetry sisters last weekend, I barely know what this form is. I just took the rhymed pairs that my more diligent wordsters donated and forced a draft of a poem out. In sonnet form. Lord.
I’ve been researching cheetahs lately, so this is what I came up with. It kinda feels like a compost heap thrown into a tornado. Oh well.
I’m sorry to be so scattered–lots of deadlines and life going on right now. No idea what we’re doing next month, but one of these wonderful people will be able to tell you! Oh, here’s a wonderful invitation from Tricia: “Would you like to try the next challenge? Next month, we’re writing in the style of Valerie Worth. You can learn more about Valerie Worth and read some of her poems at Spotlight on NCTE Poets: Valerie Worth, with Lee Bennett Hopkins, a post by Renée M. LaTulippe at No Water River. Are you in? Good! We are continuing with our 2023 theme of TRANSFORMATION. If you’re still game, you have a month to craft your creation and share it on November 24th in a post and/or on social media with the tag #PoetryPals. We look forward to reading your poems!”
