Prose Verses Poetry - Poem by Paul Butters
Prose is writing that goes right across the page. It rolls on, sentence after sentence, usually about things mundane.
But Verse is where you yourself
Decide the length of
Or stanza indeed. Some call lines “verses”. They can be very long.
Iambic metre may be used
And other metres too.
You can write anapaests if you wish.
Yet Poetry is neither prose nor verse
It is about skyscraper forests looming large,
Trees spiking though mysterious mists.
Poetry is sunshine, filling your heart
With radiant joy.
Black nights of deep depression
Give way to a golden dawn.
