New Contest Vow / Con or Opposites Attract
Blog Posted:3/9/2013 1:32:00 AM
Hello Soupers ok here is my next 'challenge'
I would like you to write me a poem any theme 19 lines no more or less, this time it's a reverse of my last contest. So it is now vowel / consonant with a two word title also vowel consonant.
For those who didn't enter last time I would urge you to have a go, it pushes your writing and thinking skills out of your comfort zone to wider boundaries. Your poem will start with a vowel word then a consonant word and so-on all the way through your poem, if a line ends in a vowel your next line starts with a consonant, but hold on there poets it would be too easy just to reverse the last one, this time I want you to write it so all of your vowels are in alphabetical order. I can hear the screams from where I sit right now.
Therefore your poem will start with a word beginning with the letter 'A' then con. then 'E" con 'I' con 'O' con 'U' con 'A' con 'E' con 'I' con 'O' con 'U' con 'A' con 'E' con 'I' con 'O' con 'U' and keep repeating this pattern until your final word ends in the 'U' vowel.
I have to say that this is incredibly difficult and frustrating but for those who know me, I like to push my writing all of the time, check my example ' Invisible Rainforests'
Any questions feel free to ask and please read and re-read your entree for any slip-ups
good luck and have fun...
There are no minimum words per line, but I expect common sense to prevail none of you would limit your lines in free verse to 2,3,4,or even 5 words...extra points for 5 vowels and 5 consonants per line ....if in doubt soup me the line for a yay or nay....
