Form M- Monorhyme Judged - Broken Wings's Blog

About Broken Wings
(Show Details...)
Bloggers Photo

I  am a writer, a poet. My poetry is deep, dark and sad, I write a lot about death, but I can write happy if I want to and do. I love art, classical music, reading, nature, meditation, dreaming.  I collect old books, vintage clothing and jewelry,  I seem to like anything old,  I adore the Victorian house where I live with my cats and I often feel out of place in this world.

Form M- Monorhyme Judged


Blog Posted:4/19/2017 3:18:00 PM
Thanks to everyone who entered my contest, I appreciate the support. Two things . . . Some did not place because they got the title wrong, it was the theme word plus two words, not the theme word twice and not the theme word changed as in mother, mother's or moment, moments. I wanted it exactly as I wrote. So those poems did not place. The other thing, was the rhyming. I checked the rhyming on Rhymezone.com and if the rhyme was not listed there your poem did not place. Just because a word sounds the same, it does not mean it rhymes, I learned that the hard way, now I always make sure. So those poems did not place either. Otherwise, your poem placed somewhere in the contest, I liked all the poems just some more than others. Congratulations. I will be visiting your poems when I get time. My new contest is posted, Form N- Ninette or Nonet, with the usual 3 themes to use, and the Title requirement. Of the two forms it was Nonet that I liked the most, but either can be beautifully penned. I have examples on my poetry page of both forms. Constance

Constance, I always look forward to your contests. The way you mix theme and form is very fun to me. Not half the contests are as fun for me to try as yours and others here that give us forms to do! Thanks for your contests and I am glad you liked my poem in the M form Contest.
