Roses and Memories~ a Blitz Poem

Misbah loves writing poetry. She says poetry is what makes her heart feels warm and light.

Inspiration Behind Writing This Poem

A few days ago a very good and caring friend and a wonderful poet, John Hansen published a hub named Clouds are Forever~ a Blitz Poem. In his article, he introduced a new form of poetry that is called 'Blitz Poem'. John tells us that he was inspired to write a Blitz poem after reading Veronica McDonald's recent article titled 'Poetry Exercise: Write a Blitz Poem.'

He says that Veronica tells that Robert Keim was the first person to compose a Blitz-style poem. It's a simple form that's enjoyable to write. The recommendation for a Blitz poem is that it must have 50 lines, be written in short or cliche phrases, and have no rhyme scheme or syllable limitations.

For me, It is a totally new style of writing poetry and has piqued my interest. John also encouraged his fellow authors to try to exercise this new form of poetry. So here I tried to give it a go. I hope John and everyone else who will read it will enjoy it.


Roses are not just the epitome of beauty, but they also symbolize love, resilience, and so much more.
