June Challenge

It’s a new month! In celebration of this, I have set myself a challenge of writing in 15 different poetic forms, spending 2 days on each one. Last month’s challenge was flowers, and I really enjoyed it, especially since I learned a great deal about the flowers themselves in the process.

Here is a list of the poetic forms that I will be writing to:

  • Limerick
  • Blank Verse
  • Haiku
  • Pastoral
  • Villanelle
  • Ode
  • Tanka
  • Ballad
  • Sonnet
  • Rondelet
  • Rhyming Couplets
  • Shape Poem
  • Sestina
  • Elegy
  • Acrostic

Most of these I have played with before, but some are new to me. Elegy in particular I suspect will push me far outside my comfort zone.

June 1’s offering is up on the Instagram, if you’d like to read it. If you are inspired and choose to join me in this journey, please tag me! #thepoetrypatio on Instagram or in some other clever way here on WordPress.

Thank you for reading! Here’s to an inspiring summer!
