Contest Description

What to Submit?

The Harrisham Rhyme was created by Harrisham Minhas, from Punjab, India.

It is a six line rhyming poem with the rhyme scheme: ababab

In this form, the last letter of the first word of each line is the first letter

of the first word of the next line. See Example below:


Rhythmic patterns encapsulating what I feel,

 cascade in words which comfort my soul,

embossing the experiences that appeal,

generated in phrases with firm control,

delightful lines upshot with zeal,

leading my muse to a further stroll.
