Today I challenge you to write a poem called an “elfchen.” I was introduced to these little poems by poets on Instagram. I find them challenging yet fun to write. An elfchen is an 11 word poem written in 5 lines— Line 1=1word, Line 2=2words, Line 3=3words, Line 4=4 words, Line 5 =1 word. Lines 1 and 5 should not be the same word.
The fun in this challenge on Instagram is when you are tagged by someone, you must start your poem using that person’s LAST word as your FIRST. Today I give you 3 elfchens written my me. You may use the last word of any of the poems to start yours.
Just for you
My heart is beating
