Writing a poem just for the sake of writing a poem.

imageWriting a poem just for the sake of writing a poem.

 

It has to rhyme
It has to
Otherwise it’s prose
And we don’t want that
Do we?

It must be in a proper poetical form
Like a sonnet
Or a Villanelle
Or the like
As that makes it structurally sound.

It must be fresh
And sharp
And not too long
As those long, long poems
That go on and on
And on
Are just too much.

It should be original;
But, most words have been used before
So, create a few new numblings
For the occasionment.

You know you want to…

So, do it.
