I have noticed a certain discouragement among my regular posters in recent challenges; hence the lack of specific assignment this week. I dare you to write a poem. Any poem. You can do any of the types we've covered in past challenges, or some new form I haven't touched on yet. Rhyme or not according to your whim. If you want, you can write the type of poem I'm going to pull out of my memory bank.
With a nod to my friend and onetime-poetry writing professor, Muser, I will borrow one of his poetry prompts. He asked us to take the letters of our full names and write a poem made entirely out of words you can form from the letters in your name. Because I wrote my poem for Muser before I was married, I have some new letters to work with this time. I may end up with some of the same things, though. We'll see. Warning: this is NOT supposed to make much sense!!
Late Nite Poetry ReduxSonar in an ear is a cent in a sack.
Error is par on a race: sine or cosine.
A pent pet stacks its crap,
pears pass as sticks sink
as teak in tea.
A con is a cone, a tease picks rice
in a tin net sent in a peck.
Or arks tick tock ten scents,
seek risk, son reeks, stinks, errs.
Increase a sick sin,
sent per pen in repair,
a rare pack on pace
to sack its art.
‘Tis a kink in a trek
apace in a park;
stack ink in air,
tack care in ice.
So, if my name-derived poem intrigues you, have at it. Or do something else that strikes your fancy. Go to it!
