Over sea and land, bleaching sky,
Endless chase this wind from heaven.
Harvest moon, a fever struck sty.
Broke and driven. Broke and driven.

  1. You wrote from your heart. I enjoy the challenge of writing in rhyme and meter but I must admit, it really changes how I write. So much energy focused on syllables and what words to end lines with. It definitely adds and extra layer of challenge to getting the meaning across.

  2. The wonderful thing about d’Verse hosts, most of the time, they allow poetic license within the form. These form prompts are here to help us become more expansive writers, and we may object or adopt as we please. So no grief from me, dear.
