IN-FORM POET WEDNESDAY – YOU PICK IT

The form for this week is up to you. Write in your favorite form. It’s that simple. Write as many poems as you wish, in as many different forms as you’d like. Or try to conquer a form that you shy away from. Either way, the form is totally your choice.

Use the IN-FORM POET WEDNESDAY DIRECTORY to refresh your memory. And remember, you can even write in a form we have yet to cover. Maybe you can teach US a thing or two and we’ll feature your form soon!

WALT’S FORM:

I do love the Sestina, but I have a strong affinity for the Alouette:

ANGEL VOICES AT DAWNING

I hear it gently,
and I mentally
take note of the lilting song.
Angel voices sing
the soundtrack of Spring.
Their chorus is loud and strong.

Morning brings their sound,
and it is around
dawn’s first light that I hear it.
A poet’s heart sees
the living beauty
within euphonic spirit.

I begin each day
the exact same way.
I am thankful for this gift.
My whispered prayer
rises through the air;
as their harmonies uplift.
