Form of the Month
June is Pantoum Month! It is ending tomorrow, so this is the last day that the pantoums are featured in the journal. Thank you to all our members for your wonderful participation and great pantoums!
A pantoum is a poem comprised of quatrains where the second and fourth line of a stanza become the first and third lines of the next stanza. See the write-up for more information.
Here are some of the pantoums our members have written.
