Megan Pryor in one of her lessons at defined prosaic poem as poetry that is not written in verse and contains other poetic attributes, such as rhythm and metaphors. 

Such poem doesn't concentrate on rigid metre count as seen in most poetic work; it concentrates on the story from scalp down to detail.

Robert Kiyosaki said, "Stories help us make sense of otherwise complicated things. They encourage, inspire, and even move us to take action."

Poem for Storytelling

I'm not the only believer in the power of storytelling. From the above quote, we can see that Kiyosaki also believes so much in the power of storytelling. 

Why wouldn't he? He happens to be one of those who have sold the discovery of solution to the problems of entrepreneurship with a mere instrument of storytelling; yes, his books on investment, money management, business navigation have pocketed him multi-million worth of money. [This link leads you to spy on what Robert Kiyosaki is up to recently.]

As a poet, not all poem should be directional prone. Poems that are in form of storytelling_ even if not in prosaic form, sticks to the memory of poetry readers than poems that are absolutely melody oriented. 

As simple and singable as Eldorado by Edgar Allan Poe, yet most readers cannot recite it offhand but every reader can tell again and again the poem title "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe.

My Storytelling Poems

As a poet and a huge fan of poetry, I have written all sorts of poem but my readers tend to relate better with those of my poems that are storytelling.

  • Detective Tel 1-5
  • The Remains of Raymond Hoe 1-6
  • Overcoming Gni Mocrevo
  • A Tale of Nonsense

On the conclusion to this post, I will like to note that every form or style of poetry is acceptable and good but currently, the prosaic poetry and the free verses are trending because they tend to win more readers' attention (whether poetry or not) than other pattern of poetry.
