New Challenge and one that should be fun for all of you to do ... It's called Reverse Poetry. Please follow the description to the letter. Winner will receive The "Reversal Award."
Your piece must be seven lines long ... first line 7 words long ... next line: 6 words ... next line: 5 words ... next line: 4 words ... next line: 3 words ... next line two words ... last line: one word ... when finished ... post both with the first version on top, the reversed one underneath with a single space between the two ... and please ... tag me in the comment box as @Danceinsilence ... do not tag me in the post itself. Also, failure to tag me will disqualify your work. If you do so, your entry will not be judged or read so make sure you tag me properly and again, only in the comment box ...The word count includes any title you put above your piece, otherwise the actual word count is 56 for the same piece twice. Good luck with this! I will start it off if you want to get the idea.
They have all left, every last one
silence in crystalline blooms, unshattered grows
no footstep on the stair
quiet house, empty house
The silence waits
The silence waits -
quiet house, empty house,
no footstep on the stair -
silence in crystalline blooms, unshattered, grows.
They have all left - every last one!
