Original fic: Poetry



So, for this month's original fic post, since clearly I have not had time to write any more in any of the fics that some of you so very kindly prompted me for a couple of months back (I shall keep those prompts for future reference though, so thank you!), I have decided to ask about poetry!

Who amongst you writes original poetry, and would you share some with us? What are your favourite kinds/poems, and how easy do you find them to write (if it's something you do)?

Personally, I am into haiku and limericks, and love to pop those out whenever something springs to mind. I think I like that they both - while very different - have short and often snappy little bursts of things to say, and as they have a definite pattern, you have to make them work right or they don't work at all. The limit of them satisfies me; if left to a more free-form poem, I'm as likely to never make my point or find an end!

I don't have any handy to share with you right now, but I'd love to see some of yours, and/or give me a one or two word prompt and suggest either haiku or limerick and I will try to come up with one for you as quickly as I can! It will add a little to my word count, and stretch my brain a little too, since it's been a while for me. ;-)

And if you've never really written any poetry before but want to, now's good! Ask me for a prompt (or steal something someone leaves for me)!
