Visual Verse Poetry Challenge
Visual Verse is a magical and challenging poetry website.
Poets and other writers are allowed a maximum of sixty minutes to produce a bardic gem.
I discovered the site in February and being tempted I tossed into the in-tray an unpolished stone.
Each succeeding month participants are summoned (an email reminder) to take up the challenge. February's subject of interest was Grant Wood's iconic masterpiece American Gothic.
There is much to explore in the website's archives. There you will find poetic jewels. Enough quality and variety for all tastes.
My February poem In God We Trust appears on page 129 of Volume 3 Chapter 4.
For March, the editors at Visual Verse are looking for contributions of an unusual nature.
Take a look. And don't be afraid of having a try.
With a little time pressure the old grey matter may be radically stimulated . . .
