My theme is poetry for ages 4 to 104. In addition to writing at least one poem, I'm also incorporating a Tagxedo image with a font having the same letter, and the Tagxedo theme beginning with the same letter. It isn't so easy with these last letters, so sometimes I have to get creative with where the letter is found!
We are close to the end now! But you can check out my other posts on the side. Then head on over to check out those of other writers by clicking on the top tab A to Z Participants!

I used the syllable pattern of 8/5/3 to create the ups and downs of the edges of the poem...maybe valleys and mountain shapes? Yeah, squint if you have to .
If You Can See the Valley
A valley lies between two hills
Amongst the shadows
And hushed chills.
The question posed to me is "why?"
If not for valleys
There's no high.
With valleys come the soaring heights
Of mountaintops with
With nothing higher to ascend
We would not fully
The beauty of those valley lows,
The deep and dark from
Which we rose.
