Someone's raised the stakes -- life's like that.
As soon as you think you know the game,
suddenly nothing is the same.
Christopher T. George
The above poem was written for a "casual contest" sponsored by poet Julie Carter on her blog, to write a Julain. I get the idea that the "julain" is Julie's own creation: a three-line poem of regular meter with the two last lines required to rhyme. See
Julain Contest--Deadline January 31st
Give it a go!
