Blank Verse

I attempted to write blank verse yesterday and finished with it today.

Blank verse uses the expectation of iambic pentameter and does not rhyme, if you are interested.

I have learned that blank verse is hard. Not hard to write, but hard to write well.

These are my last three lines:

The sky remains alone, its sacred tones

Proclaim a perfect beauty—but are matched

with human spirit, gentle words of mine.

So. I try. And trying and learning is what counts.
