Here is a quote from a poem by John Pepper Clark of Nigeria:
(A city in South-Western Nigeria)
Today is the day we put the “mini’ back into the Sunday Mini-Challenge, and return to the option of form poetry. The object of this challenge is to write a poem in no more than 10 lines (but you may write in fewer than 10 lines all the way down to a single American sentence). Choose your own form or write in free verse, if preferred.
Red hats sit jauntily
on trees and plants,
topping the like
They are only Autumn’s
leaves stopping by.
