“Write a short rhyming poem inspired by the last novel you read.”
All apologies. I suck at poetry. That’s sort of my husband’s wheelhouse. Besides, the main character of the last novel I read (re-read, let’s be honest) hates poetry. But here goes.
Hair the color of the heart of flame,
Passion for knowledge, for vengeance, none could tame.
Known by many names, but none whole true.
Who is he really, the seeker of the fire burning blue?
See? Bloody awful. And my subject is a super cool character. It can’t be helped. Have no fear, if there’s poetry in our novels, I’ll leave it to Keith to write it. I’m better at things like evil spirits and torture scenes.
