+ Battle One = Tad_Winslow - vs - d.f.m + =
Our first poetry battle is between Tad_Winslow (T.J.D) and d.f.m, (Dayla).
T.J.D. has been writing for several years and is particularly fond of free verse, which means this particular topic might be a challenge!
Dayla however is accustomed to the realms of rhythm and rhyme, so she will definately be giving T.J.D a run for his money on this one.
Best of luck to both entrants.
Consider carefully your topic, for you have the choice of whatever you wish to write. However, the element you must truly focus on is the meter of the poem. I want you to write a poem that explores rhythm and experiences a transition of different meters. You do NOT need to rhyme, but it may make things easier.
You will be judged on your use of meter and quality of content. If you use different meters make sure the poetry still flows! That is what is most important in this task.
