Here is the winning kimo:
"Iris," by Julie A. Sellers
Overnight, some sprite of spring has magicked
fragrant dreams from unfurled buds
and gilded them with dawn.
Play with poetic forms!
Poetic forms are fun poetic games, and this digital guide collects more than 100 poetic forms, including more established poetic forms (like sestinas and sonnets) and newer invented forms (like golden shovels and fibs).
Congratulations, Julie! This was just a beautiful poem from the imagery to the poetic sounds and language.
Here’s my Top 10 list:
- Iris, by Julie A. Sellers
