Now remember you don't have to write something different if you don't want to. The challenge doesn't state that. I'm just putting out a personal challenge to try something new. But you don't have to if you don't want to.

Love this poem even if I can't come up with a creative entry. As with Carolyn, I'll have to give it some thought. Maybe some inspiration will find me. Thank you for sharing this challenge with us. Karen

Sounds exciting, Nate! I usually shy away from the contests, but I do like pursuing new poetic forms. I'll have to give some thought to developing a new style. You've inspired me and I'm sure many will heed the call of the "Haiku prince." Like the verse you wrote to extended the invitation to fellow poets! Love, Carolyn
