The Anna: Hush

This poem is my final contribution to the poetic ‘scavenger hunt’ designed by @murisopsis from A Different Perspective. This time the theme is Names, as in poetic forms that feature a name (e.g. one of the prompts is to write a poem in the form of “Amandas Pinch” — a form I’ve personally never heard of before). There are thirteen prompts in total so this is more manageable then a daily commitment challenge. Check out all the prompts and the way it works here and join in if your up for some poetic puzzling. Enjoy!

Prompt 13

Write a poem using the form The Anna or write a Dr. Stella.

A Different Perspective

The Anna poem is composed of 7 lines with syllable count 2/3/4/5/4/3/2 and unrhymed. Full rules here.


Hush. Hush.
Listen to
The rhythm of
Our hearts in tandem
Chanting quietly
A mantra
Of love.

What a wonderful learning experience this poetry scavenger hunt has been. I found a few new forms that I will experiment with. A big thanks to Murisopsis for designing and hosting it.

Be well,
