    Diane,
    I forgot to respond to this and didn’t want you to think
    I took what you said for granted. Thank you for your
    Thoughts on my Sestina entry, it was the first time I’d
    Ever tackled such a form, being honest I’ve mostly avoided
    Such forms as I thought them too challenging… I realize

    Diane,
    Here are my challenges, I really enjoy the challenge of these challenges and
    I find myself trying something new each time as all these forms are unexplored. Normally I write free verse… I chose the Acrostic, the Nonet and the 10 word challenges. For the 10 word challenge I picked haiku but since the 10 words equal 20 syllables it’s a…[Read more]

    1st Stanza
    I Am…writing my way out of the chains
    I fettered my fate to, with words meant
    To escape and break through hidden truths
    Spoken in whispers woven out of the threads
    of Love…

    What the sun and moon feel like upon my up-turned face,
    What freedom feels like as I watch others forget…[Read more]
