Wednesday Poetry Challenge

Since I am going to the woods “to live deliberately” (at least for a few days), I thought I would leave you with a Challenge; something that might keep you from getting into trouble… 😉
I would like you to write something in the style of an early 19th century Romantic poet; you know, Keats, Byron, Shelley, etc. Your choice – doesn’t have to be in anyone’s actual style, just make it sound otherworldly and romantic.
It doesn’t have to be a flash; you can take your time. I have flashed out an example opening stanza of what I am describing, thusly:

In woodland vale and faerie glen,
With hornèd brow, and manner keen,
Great Cernunnos, beheld I then,
With Nymphs and Dryads was he seen.

I think you get the idea. I look forward to seeing what you come up with.

Rhyme on! Continue reading

UDPS Flash Haiku Summer

The Unseen

The unseen rule me:
Nameless, faceless, all-knowing;
I’m in their power.

Voices from the past,
Echo through my waking mind;
Driving me insane.

If they would but cease,
My thoughts could become clearer,
Allowing me peace.

I fear the darkness;
Its shadowy, velvet touch,
Caressing my soul.

You shall have your peace,
When we have been satisfied.
Thus spake the unseen.

Unseen Flash Haiku Challenge for Thursday, 3rd June 2010

This wasn’t my original thought for today’s challenge, but Geoff Munsterman mentioned doing another single-themed “flash” haiku challenge, with the exception that this time no one would see anyone else’s until they were all posted, and I’m an accommodating type of guy, so…

Here are your parameters:

Title your post, “UDPS Flash Haiku Summer.”
Save your haiku post as a draftdo not publish it.
Tonight, at 10:00PM ET (US East Coast Time, e.g. New York time, for those of you in the antipodes), I will publish all the drafts for this challenge in the order they were saved as drafts.

Your theme: THE UNSEEN

This could get interesting. Your challenge begins…NOW!

Rhyme on! Continue reading
