Each article includes the requirements of the form, as well as examples, other related links, and definitions when needed. I also like Brewer’s suggestion that “It might even make a good year-long challenge to write one form each week of the year.” Check out his complete list below.

Almond Tree

The wind brushes whispering dry paper bark –

it tastes like the footprints of bees,

tastes like foaming petal smoke,

and drifts of antique yellow blossoms

ride like kisses on a gnarled green branch.

Bitter sap flows, hidden beneath creamy soft buds

sweet pollen drifts to the skies.

Almond tree in bloom.
