Spree? or: Verse, of course!

My 1st ‘Bob & Wheel’ poem

Dear Val -
across the world from me -
in your Midwest locale.
Of verse, you're on a spree!
Who shall join in? I shall.

Bob & Wheel?

  • a quintain (5 line poem);
  • rhyme scheme: a // b/a/b/a;
  • syllable count: [2 or 3] // 6/6/6/6;
  • often incorporated into longer poems but can stand aloneโ€ฆ

Muri’s poetry scavenger hunt

My friend Muri (Val) is running a poetry scavenger hunt for Na/GloPoWriMo, which I shall attempt to participate in fully this year.

From what I understand, she’s offering three poetry prompts every week for the duration of the month of April ’22 (on MWF).

Last year, I was pretty busy with my personal micropoetry project so I only responded to several of her poetry challenges, but this year I hope to rectify that!


Let’s write poetry together!

When it comes to partnership, some humans can make their lives alone – it’s possible. But creatively, it’s more like painting: you can’t just use the same colours in every painting. It’s just not an option. You can’t take the same photograph every time and live with art forms with no differences.

Ben Harper (b. 1969)

Would you like to create poetry with me and have a completed poem of yours featured here at the Skeptic’s Kaddish? I am very excited to have launched the ‘Poetry Partners’ initiative and am looking forward to meeting and creating with you… Check it out!

  1. I headed over to Muri’s site and am joining the hunt! Used your word spree in my poem and linked to you both in the post. Many thanks for sharing!

  2. This is a fun form – think I might join in on this (although, I am a day late!) Lovely little verse.

  3. Hehe! I’m tickled!! You got that bob and wheel rolling nicely and you are off to a very promising start! I can’t wait to see where your imagination takes you next!

  4. This sounds like an interesting challenge. I would participate, but I’m in the middle of doing my thing right nowโ€”great verse, by the way.
