He likes to start them and I like to finish them. Iron Poet Challenges that is!
For some time now, J D Smith and I have challenged each other at poetry. And goodness there have been some doozies! We've challenged each other on writing in the voice of the other gender; to writing about children; the first kiss; true stories of courage; in the form of a cinquain; an englyn; poems of love for Valentine's Day; poems about superheroes; rodents; angels; poems containing rocks and minerals; stars seen only in the northern hemisphere; and the latest, a very difficult poem about the end of the world! That was a real tough one, JD! Very tough!
Well, as they say ... REVENGE IS SWEET!
So JD, now it's my turn! Are you ready?

Here are the rules:
1. Write a poem, in any form, from the perspective of a river ... not about a river ... but from the river's own outlook. Become the river!
2. The river's name must be included in the poem AND the name must be that of an Australian river! (A list of Australian rivers and creeks can be found here. By clicking on the name of the river or creek you will find a wealth of information which might be useful in your poem!)
3. There must be at least one word beginning with the letter 'q' in the poem.
4. A number, OR date, OR year, should also appear in the poem.
