New poet craft form: AmeriKu

Iowa-born poet and photographer Joseph Randell Sherman originated this form in 2007.

An AmeriKu consists of 4 unrhymed lines of 3-5-3-4 syllables written on a nature and/or spiritual theme. These are the only themes an AmeriKu can write about. Remember, there are no rhymes and you must conform to the number of syllables per line. And there are only four lines to the poem.

Here are two examples of my own:


JOURNEY

to this soul
eager for Heaven
happily
I feed goodness

#

UNLIKE MAN

Without qualms
Lions hunt and kill
Driven by
Guilt-free instinct

#

Deadline: February 1, 2010

You can enter this contest with one or two separate AmeriKu.

Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper
