Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter M
NaPoWriMo: A poem that addresses itself or some aspect of itself.
I’m not sure if I met the prompt’s guidelines but I feel I covered the IDEA of the prompt. Hope you like it. I wrote a Minute Poem, a 12-line poem consisting of 60 syllables in STRICT iambic pentameter. There are 3 stanzas formatted into 8/4/4 syllables per line. Yes, I know. Here I am complaining about Sapphic poetry and iambic meter and there I am CHOOSING to write in iambic meter. But, I think I may have it figured out after that Sapphic poem. Anyway, this one was easy. My M word is Message and Minute, hence why I chose the Minute Poem.
Message From A Poem
By Jessica Scott
My heart I give to you in verse;
My love, the words
I bleed in ink.
My soul becomes the book you read;
Some leaves are torn
And some are blank.
But I will be here when you’ve gone,
Your name I’ll keep
Engraved in stone.
