I heard His words echo “Follow,
Follow Me” and my heart told me go,
Go, leave the chaos, Follow Him,
Him, who knows all there is to know.

I love the truth in this poem and also the lilting rhythm.
Thanks Diane. The Loop form is a new type of form to me and seemed quite challenging to write but I do like it.
I tend to just write whatever comes without considering any particular form of poetry I may or maynot be writing in. Years ago the only social network I was on was the Ryze Network, but they kind of petered out though they still exist. I was in a writers’ group and one member was a poet and he used to teach us different forms of poetry and had little contests. I think I won one or two, but I’m not sure where those poems might be now. I can’t remember my password to Ryze and I can’t find anywhere to contact them. The leader of that group can still get in, so it’s just that I need the password.
Oh yes, sometimes I do write Free Verse but I really like the challenge of using Forms.
Most of mine aren’t free verse either. They do have form, like 4-line rhyming verses for example, but I have no idea what those forms might be called. I just don’t set out to adhere to a particular form. I have written a diamante on purpose.
Nice. I have written a few Diamanté
Wish I knew where to find mine. I do have a file drawer in my desk with a lot of writing and printed copies of my books, so maybe I’ll take time later to see if I can find some of those old poems.
