    Past Contest Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest #240: October #1, 2013 -- The Trochee (SUBMISSION CLOSED)

    Discussion in 'Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest Archives' started by morepages, Sep 28, 2013.

    Bi-Weekly Poetry Contest #240
    for the first two weeks of October 2013:

    THE TROCHEE
    We've had a few larger themes through the poetry contest lately (and maybe that's the way it should be), but I thought I would try a more...puzzling theme for this contest. Please let me know how this kind of theme works for you.

    The Trochee is a metric foot in poetry which consists of a stressed syllable and then an unstressed one (DUN-dun DUN-dun DUN-dun). It's an overpowering rhythm which sounds an awful lot like a heartbeat. The theme this week is to incorporate the trochee into a poem on a topic of your choosing; the winning poet will be the poet who most effectively uses the trochee to evoke their poem's message.

    Best wishes,

    No one dares to face the mighty wordsmithing of @JJ_Maxx in the arena? Take your best shot at using a Trochee in a poem before the Submission Deadline of next Friday!
    Remember, you can always PM me with drafts you're working on if you want to know if they're right for the contest!
