Albert's Poetry Cafe ~ Poet Craft Form: AmeriKu with Salvatore! January 18, 2010 - February 1, 2010
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:
to this soul
eager for Heaven
I feed goodness
Lions hunt and kill
Deadline: February 1, 2010
You can enter this contest with one or two separate AmeriKu.
Platinum, Gold, Silver, Bronze, Copper
1st 2nd 3rd 4th & 5th prizes!
