For this week, let’s sample some freedom!

Sometimes the muses need structure; sometimes they need to run free. So for this week, please write a free verse poem of about 10 lines. You may use any rhyme you like — or lack of rhyme. Any line length, any meter, any rhythm, repetition, or any other devices you like. Or – you may use none of these things.

Whatever you write, however – read it aloud to get a better sense of your poem’s feel.

Now for our inspiration:

You may write a shadorma in the place of free verse – or if you’re really inventive a combination of shadorma and free verse.  The shadorma is a non-rhyming 6-line poem with a syllable count of 3/5/3/3/7/5. You many also choose whatever inspires you either from this post or use your own original work.

When you have written your post, tag itMindLoveMisery’s Menagerie and B&Ps Shadorma and Beyond.  And don’t forget to add your link to Mister Linky.

Good luck!
