Form of the Month
June is Pantoum Month!

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.

This month I'd like it if people made an effort to write pantoums, because this form is my current favorite and is really enjoyable to read and write.

Member-Composed Pantoums
Here are some of the pantoums our members have written.
After the night by alenia
Hunger in the Night by chiroptera
Pantoum of Edges by tessuraea
The Edge of Shore and Sand by elenehn

See the devpack for more!
