It’s not called a chalenge for nothing. Yesterday’s beautiful spring weather captured me and I spent the entire day outside in the yard and garden. As a result, our sixteenth prompt slipped down on my priority list which included cutting back an enormous holly bush on our property, clearing leaves from the base of plants, and weeding. Now that these chores are done, let’s write!

For some reason, maybe the spring weather and all the imaginings of what the new garden will look like, I’ve been wanting to invent a new poetry form. So, let’s do it. For this prompt, create a new poetry form. You can focus on rhyme as does the sonnet, repetition of words or lines as do the pantoum and sestina, or subject matter as does the elegy.

Invent the form and then write the poem.
