Birthday Party (iambic heptameter with cuplets)

FREE WRITING

Her hair was pulled into pigtails, a gap in her wide grin.
She leaps upon her favorite chair, as if she got a win.

She cups her mouth to then shout out, “bring out my party pie!”
Gifts tumble out with bight pink bows, balloons appear to fly.

The clown pauses his party tricks, the kids gather around.
They squeeze and push, to try make room before the pie countdown. 

Mom and Dad go light the candles, each with a...

Runt (a constraint poem)

FREE WRITING

The neighborhood was cluttered, houses slammed up against each other
in a slanted fashion. Henry had grown up from a boy
with holes in his pockets and an insatiable hunger; to a man
who spent the stretching days asleep, and the night bruising his knuckles
against the rough, disjointed, faces of his opponents. There were 
countless fight clubs, no authority bothered to investigate
the city’s foremost entertainment. Henry swore he had seen a 
Uniform in the dim club lights, wearing...

The Rabbit an Abecedarian poem

FREE WRITING

A darkness filtered through leaves, so 
black it swallowed her entire being,
crawling underneath her hair, nerves pinpointed with sticky
dread. She had not 
eaten that day, and her eyes and limbs 
felt like they would droop into a muddied puddle on the damp
ground. The rabbit had unblinking beady eyes. It slowly
hopped between the wet vegetation,
indecisively moving from tree to tree,
jostling the plants as its little nose quivered. She somehow
knew the rabbit was near, as...

Little blue house pt. 2

FREE WRITING

    “Ma, are you alright?” Elio called,  a few paces in front of her. 
    Delia glanced up the mountain, but could no longer see the outline of the blue house. The magic she had felt around her for the past decades, had quieted, leaving her uncomfortably alone. 
    “I’m fine, but we should try and reach the village by dusk.” Delia said, the nausea fading from her body, “The mountain path disappears when the moon rises.”
    Elio cleared his throat, “is...

The little blue house

FREE WRITING



    The little blue house sat on top of a large mountain. There were no roads, save for a narrow dirt path mangled by tree roots, that could guide a stray traveller up the incline. Once a person passed the wide trees with their bark stained red from the ages and printed with damp moss, the path ended. The forest thinned as trees turned to shrubs and then to tall grass that played melodies when the eastern winds swept by. The...
