This weeks REAPER's CHALLENGE!
What it is: I give you three words, you write a poem, takin the first two words and put them in the first line, all three words in the first stanza. If you really want to challenge yourself, I tell the others to set a timer for five minutes. You will be amazed at what you can create in five minutes!

This is one of the greatest love poems of all time, written by poet Christopher Brennan. Thanks to Phenomenal for inspiring this idea when she posted Maya Angelou's Phenomenal woman. You will see that form and the look of a poem should tempt, excite, you to want to indulge in the poem- before you have laid eyes on the first letter. I see a lot of poets just tossing their poems in the editor and then NOT editing their poems, even when they see that the poem is disjointed and all over the place. Your poem is yours. It represents you. When you give it to the world to see, allow the world to see it in the best light possible.
Poets can easily join and be recording their Poetry LiVE - within 60 seconds!
