Free Verse

Free verse is the name given to poetry that doesn’t use any strict meter or rhyme scheme. Because it has no set meter, poems written in free verse can have lines of any length, from a single word to much longer.

You are the blackened remains of wood

The product of fire and time

You hold the memories of flames

The stories of heat and light

You are the versatile tool of art

The medium of sketches and shades

You create the shapes of beauty

The expressions of lines and curves

You are the ancient source of fuel

The catalyst of cooking and warmth

You feed the hunger of humans

The cravings of taste and smell

You are the humble element of carbon

The essence of life and death

You connect the past and the present

The cycle of ash and dust


A diamante poem is a style of poetry that comprises seven lines. The text forms the shape of a diamond (◊). A diamante poem can compare two opposites or can explore synonyms and antonyms.


Black, burnt

Smoldering, drawing, grilling

Fire, smoke, art, food

Sketching, shading, flavoring

Gray, soft



A dissonance poem is a poem that uses a disruption of harmonic sounds or rhythms to create a sense of discomfort, tension, or unease. It can be done by using vowel sounds that clash together, changing the rhyme scheme, or using harsh-sounding words.

You are the bitter contrast of white

The discordant note of silence

You clash with the harmony of colors

The dissonance of dark and light

You are the harsh reminder of loss

The broken chord of life

You echo the pain of destruction

The dissonance of fire and ice

You are the stubborn stain of dirt

The jarring sound of friction

You resist the flow of water

The dissonance of clean and smudge
