Warnings: aside from warning for awkward rhyme schemes, I think we're okay
Notes: Oh it's NaPoWriMo, I said. I should write a bunch of poems for that April Showers challenge for Rainbow Fic, I said. Why am I trying to find rhymes for meteorite at four in the morning, I said.

This grew into an exercise in conveying different speakers through poetry. About half are free verse. Of the rest, roughly speaking, Koushou's is a tanaga, Akane's is a haiku, Keiji's is a shadorma, Wenlong's is a sijo, Chenek's is a ghazal, Vien's is loosely based on a lục bát and Jian's is trying for a classical aesthetic but not a specific form or meter. All errors in syllable counting are my own.

Word Count: ~600
Rating: PG-13ish?
Notes: So at this point I'm pretty sure "this is not what I sat down to write" is my motto or something. Here is a saturation about Huang Ming, Yuyan's father. Because it seemed like a good idea at midnight, and because reading through the [personal profile] ironplumblossom archives in preparation for this, I decided that I kind of ♥ Ming a lot. Some of these are pre-[community profile] rainbowfic, but hopefully it's still considered in the spirit of the challenge. All are linked in the [personal profile] ironplumblossom journal because that was easier to search through. I hope I didn't get anything egregiously wrong, Isana!
