Poetry Challenge #10
AND TO THINK THAT I SAW IT . . .
List 10 or more things you saw on the bus or in the car this morning on your way to work or school. Or take a walk and list things you see. Pick 5 of the things and put one on each line. Add detail or metaphor (it looks like a…it is as ___ as a ___).
If you can get a friend to do this with you, put your two poems together when you’re both done. Switch every other line. Then read the poem and see if you want to move some lines around to get it in a better order or change some words to make it rhyme (or not rhyme) or sound better.
And if you have more than one friend do this, even better!
Set the timer for 7 minutes.
Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
*Cindy and I began this 7-Minute Poetry Challenge more than 600 days ago. We now take turns creating our own prompts to share with you. If you join us in the 7-Minute Poetry Challenge be sure to let us know by posting the title, a note, or if you want, the whole dang poem, in the comments!
