Poetry is an art form I have enjoyed for many years. I am particularly fond of the lyrical flow of classical poetry. I employ simplicity of words in my poems, but equally enjoy poetry in which elegant words and expressions are skillfully used.

I'm hosting my first contest. I hope the selected form will inspire poets to submit some beautifully penned poetry.

The Rubaiyat isn't one I see posted often, yet the form allows for elegant poetic expressions. There is a wealth of talent on Poetry Soup, so I'm looking forward to seeing what excellent work will be submitted for this contest. Thank you, to all who decide to participate!
