Mick’s Short Form Poetry Challenge
Rare Short Form Poetry

Firstly; thanks to all who participated in the original Elfje challenge, it was a bit of a slow start, but we were getting there. However, a suggestion made by Jules Paige that I change the format to a multi one based on short forms of poetry, I thought a great idea, and for which I thank her, most gratefully. Here then are the forms, if they are new to you please click on the one that takes your interest for its guidelines, thank you. Some of them can be likened to rare breeds, and as the saying goes, “Use them or lose them”. It might be that some of them were totally unknown to you, there were to me. So, I think by broadening the scope of the challenge it will perpetuate some of the rarer forms, and hopefully encourage new inventions too, the door is open to all. New short forms will be added as and when they are brought to my attention. Note some of the prompt words, (as presented), might be found to not fit in with some of the forms, but don’t forget yer synonyms. Hope you enjoy this new challenge, and if anyone has any ideas on improving it don’t forget the comment box, I’m all eyes! Prompt for this week, ‘tweet’, renewed every Sunday sometime after midnight London time. Suggestings, advice, all welcome, please use the comment box, thank you.
Please note more forms added, thank you.
There has to be some rules, but before I get to them, all participants can submit as many entries as they wish; now the rules:
