Unfortunately, Sam Edge is unable to present this month's meme due to his being on sabbatical from poetry blogging. Therefore, I have stepped into the fray once again. My task was made a whole lot easier, when I visited Verse Escape this morning and read Hedgewitch's latest poem, Not Love. There I was struck, not only by the power of the piece but also by the footnote, in which she describes her poem thus:
A contrarian ten-line stanza form I just invented, and a poem for no prompt whatsoever.
I thought, "How avant-garde!" and thus, today's challenge was engendered.
Write a poem for no prompt whatsoever. You may create your own stanza form, if you wish to or be quite contrary and throw form to the wind. Remember the basic precepts of the school of avant-garde art is to be innovative, ahead of your times, bold, courageous and visionary.
