Take A Chance Challenge - Challenge #9



I'm so excited to be participating in the Take A Chance Challenge hosted by Jenners over at Find Your Next Book Here. She has come up with 10 fun and clever tasks that involve books, reading, and even a little writing. This is my blog entry for Challenge #9.

Here are the instructions for this particular challenge:

9. Poetic Review
Write a book review in three different forms of verse: haiku, limerick and free verse. (You can pick any book you want to write about).

I chose Blood Red by Heather Graham


Let me just say that this is the most difficult challenge for me. Writing poetry is definitely not my thing. Not my thing at all. But, anyway, here is my attempt:

Haiku

Friends in New Orleans
they meet vampires good and bad
a battle ensues


Limerick

Three friends who went to have fun,

Ended up being sent on the run;

From vampires out to kill,

They did it with magical skill.

But finally the good people won!



Free Verse

Vampires lurking in the city,
most are oblivious to their presence;
but a few are acutely aware.

While evil tries to seduce
and possess those who are weak,
Good is there to fight and protect.

Awesome job with this poetry challenge, Kari! I have a confession that I've always been scared of vampires. Your poems were effective in creeping me out a little:) You successfully gave me that whole vampire vibe!

Great poetry, Kari. I love it! It is interesting how much we can tell with only a few words.
