Prose Poetry, I think not
Tuesday, June 16, 2015: Prose poetry, which is written in paragraphs, focuses on images. This type of poem contains all the literary devices, tools, and techniques that a verse poem contain. Examples of this type of prose poems can be found in journals and even in some blogs. Some of the hallmarks of a prose poem are descriptive language, instances of poetic meter and rhyme within the paragraph. Other literary devices that are found in prose poems are plays on language or words, repetition, and the use of metaphor or simile. In some prose poems a reader can feel the emotions in the same way one feels them in verse poems. Have you ever read or attempted to write a prose poem? Did you find it more difficult to understand then a verse poem? Can you give an example of a prose poem?

I had no idea what prose poetry was until I googled it last night. I thought I would understand from your description but alas the form alluded me. Then I googled prose poetry and was still lost. I have never read nor written prose poetry and I certainly could not give an example. So again, back to FireFox, I entered "examples of prose poetry" into the search engine and clicked on a link. That is when I discovered I HAVE READ PROSE POETRY, and I love Gertrude Stein!
