Re: Well...

Yeah, I kinda wanted to get that out there as explanation why it's unlikely to see me commenting on poems, or joining in to the fishbowl prompting.

Re: Well...

I write all kinds of poetry. I like forms, including rhymed/metered forms. My favorites of the latter include sonnets, villanelles, and triolets. Poetry fishbowls vary -- often I write a lot of free verse, but some themes run heavy to form poetry. (High Fantasy did that.) So if you watch the thumbnails, you can see which poems are free verse and which are forms; I usually remember to specify the form.

Also, forms are a legitimate type of prompt. You can ask for any form that you like. It's a way to let people leave prompts even if the current theme doesn't grab them.

A quick skim through the "Serial Poetry" page reveals these rhymed, metered poems:

"The Snake Goddess"
The Odd Trio -- whole series
"Fair Maiden Meets Fierce Villain"
"The Daughters of Befana"

There are more if you click the "poem" tag and just skim through looking for the ones that rhyme.
