Day 30 2024 ~ How to write a “Free Choice Poem” for #NationalPoetryMonth ~ "30 poems in 30 days"

Well, sadly, we have arrived at the end of another Poetry Month!! I will miss your daily offerings!! Y’all have been doing great!! Today I thought you could choose any style of poetry we have done this year (or any other year) or just do a free-style poem of your own creation.

And IF you can think of a fun new way to present it – do so. Add your own artwork or any way you can think of to highlight it. OR just write one up, and put it out there for others to see. That takes a lot of creativity in and of itself. No need to be fancier than that! (If you use a form we have done in this group maybe you could put the name of that poetry format in parentheses. Or not, whatever). Take care. Enjoy!!

Love to you all. Thanks for a great month!! Cheers!!


Here are my two offerings on this final day of Poetry Month:

        (Cinquain, pattern 2 ~ count the words per line [1-2-3-4-1])

Sharing together
Baring our souls
Creativity at its best

        And here’s a little free verse one I wrote:

You learn from me
I learn from you
And we create something
Stronger than before
We become more
A work-in-progress
Added upon

See you next year!! Cheers!!


PLEASE REMEMBER ~ any poetry found on this blog, written by me, is my personal property and may not be used without my permission, other than sharing it as an example in a lesson or to read it to someone. The same goes for any poems that are shared in the comments of this blog or elsewhere online as a result of this challenge. They are the creative property of the person who writes them. These poems are their original work and no one may use them without their permission. It is understood that they own the copyright to them as soon as they create them and especially once they post them. Thanks so much!

*** Also, if you choose to post your poems on your own blog or elsewhere on social media ~ that’s awesome. But PLEASE don’t just copy and paste my daily instructions, but rather post your poem on your blog or your FB wall or wherever AND LINK BACK TO EACH DAY’S SPECIFIC BLOG POST for others to come here to read the instructions. I’ve spent considerable time researching the poetry forms and writing them up to share with you. Thanks for respecting my work.
