Apples are red
Curse words are blue
I just wrote a poem about New York
Now…how about you?
Dude, I never claimed to be a poet. And you don’t have to be either to participate in the April mini-challenge! This is part of the larger NY Challenge that I’m hosting (and if you’ve read your book, don’t forget to post the link here). In February we made lists. In March, we celebrated National Women’s History Month, NY-style. This month, we’ll be writing poetry. The good news is, it doesn’t matter how bad it is (hello, did you notice my lack of skill?), you’ll still get an A for effort. Well, you’ll get an entry into the giveaway, at least (this month it’s a Strand mug).
You can write a haiku, a limerick, or heck, even a sonnet (overachiever). Your poem can rhyme, or not. You could even parody a song (and heck, if you do that, I’ll give you two entries!). It just has to be about New York. Because, you know, this is a NY Challenge.
Once you’ve composed and posted your masterpiece, come back here and sign Mr Linky. Then check back on May 1st to see who’s the lucky winner.
