We really need to figure out how to do some readings of the poems from THE POETRY FRIDAY ANTHOLOGY.
Sylvia Vardell and Janet Wong, thank you for such a fun collection of poems.
The party is over.
the guests have left.
I'm feeling sad
and slightly bereft.
Do you like parties? Many parties in Tucson have pinatas. What do you think the pinata for a poetry party would look like? I know what would go inside--sweets, good words and great lines for poems.
I keep an idea bowl on my desk. I cut interesting words and phrases from magazines when I see them and put them in the bowl. On days when I can't think about what to write,I grab some words from the bowl and see if I can fashion them into a poem. Do you keep and idea bowl, jar or envelope to help you write poems?
The poetry challenge for today is to write a poem about how you feel today. Are you happy, sad, busy, tired, delighted,or just plain punked? Have fun writing. It doesn't have to be long just try to write something.
