I've been thinking now is as good a time as any to experiment a little bit with fixed form poetry as opposed to my typical free verse.  I don't really know where to start, though; so I was hoping you guys could be a big help and tell me a form or two (bearing in mind that I'm a beginner) that you'd like to see me try.  A prompt would be cool too but I won't beg too much of you; that said, if you don't know much about fixed forms but would like to share a prompt only, that'd be really cool too.  Japanese forms are my favourite, as well as my comfort zone, so forms other than haiku and tanka will make for more interesting suggestions/results.  In return, you can have my eternal gratitude and hopefully a poem to read.  And I can even put a little feature in the artist comments, if you want.  Thanks!

No worries :hug:  School's gotta take precedence over that stuff (congratulations on surviving exams, too!).  I haven't got to your feature yet either (thank you so much for that and the watch, by the way), so I know how easy it is to get buried in your message centre.
