April is National Poetry Month! The idea is to write 30 poems in 30 days. On NaPoWritMo.net, you’ll find a daily challenge for the month. I don’t follow their challenges, but I try to write a poem a day. Here’s today’s challenge:
“…It’s a Spanish form called a “glosa” – literally a poem that glosses, or explains, or in some way responds to another poem. The idea is to take a quatrain from a poem that you like, and then write a four-stanza poem that explains or responds to each line of the quatrain, with each of the quatrain’s four lines in turn forming the last line of each stanza. Traditionally, each stanza has ten lines, but don’t feel obligated to hold yourself to that! Here’s a nice summary of the glosa form to help you get started.”NaPoWritMo.net
