Free verse is poetry that isn't tied to a certain poetic form... so, it doesn't have to rhyme, or be a certain amount of lines, or a certain number of syllables. To still make it poetry, the words have to be well-chosen and artistic, and it is usually still arranged in stanzas and lines, not in paragraphs. The majority of modern poetry is free verse.


It is like free-styling your words and making it your own. It doesn't exactly have to rhyme, it's just mainly blending in with the subject leading from one occurrance to another. In easier words just let out the flow. Start little and take off when your mind says go! :) It also can have any amount of stanzas you want!
