An Explanation

I belong to a poetry writing group and we are tasked this month by writing to ‘prompts’ that are sent each morning. There will be a prompt each day this month thus a different style of poem each day.

“Poetry Prompts – Sunday, April 6 – Are you still writing to celebrate National Poetry Month? Why not try something different? Write a COUNT UP on any topic – This titled form consists of exactly ten lines, the first line having one syllable, each succeeding line adding a syllable, the stanza having with a total count of fifty-five syllables; the form allows both rhyme and meter, while its similar cousin, the ETHEREE, allows neither.”
