After 7 years, Que finally gets a Daily Deviation.

Happy!

There's something very warm and nice about getting a little bit of recognition and having people tell you that something you wrote resonated with them.  I couldn't ask for better.

Impressive imagery.  I'm going to have to read this a few times. I am not well versed in the technical aspects of prose.  Did you use a formal template or outline for arrangement or was it, for lack of a better term,  freehand composition?

Did you mean poetry?  I'll assume so, as this isn't prose.  So yes, it was done "freehand", as you say.  I don't think one can really plan poetry.  I suppose you could, but in many ways that would defeat the purpose.

Yes, I misused prose.  I meant poetry.  I was under the impression that there were certain formats of poetry, sonnets, haiku, etc.  Not that one is limited to such formats, I was just curious if you used one.  I'm not sure I agree that planning a poem defeats the purpose of creating a poem.  Perhaps in some cases but I suppose it depends on your definition of planning.

There are a great many poetic forms, both rhyming and not, but a lot of these are more classical in nature.  People still use them regularly, but poetry of our day has a much greater focus on alliteration and assonance for its rhyme, and often eschews meter in the strictest sense.  An intrinsic understanding of form is important for a poet, as it's the understanding of form that better helps one to let go of it in ways that still hold things together.  Even with most forms, however, I don't think your average poet "plans" anything other than the basic building blocks of that chosen from, or a basic idea, or even just a simple starting point.  One of poetry's strongest advantages versus prose is how easily and quickly it can evolve.
