Poetry Tips: Rhyme For Rhythm

Sometimes I have trouble getting a poem to flow, I’m sure you do, too. However, I have found that creating rhyming poems provides fantastic practice for rhythm and timing. So this week I want you to come up with rhyming versions of any poem you are wanting to write and see if you don’t find a way to create better flow, timing, and rhythm in the process. Also, challenge yourself to rhyme unusual words just for the fun of it!


Orange – Stone Henge
Austere – Mere
Meter -- Cedar

You may just find that rhyme isn’t passé after all and find some new insights while writing. Good luck to all who try it!
