Since I don't believe in giving assignments that I myself am not willing to do... I began writing poetry again.
We tried a few timed writing exercises. It's been a while since I've written any poetry, so I thought I would share one with you. If you'd like to check out a first draft, and wouldn't mind offering some feedback, PM me and I'll trade critiques with you.
I produced each one in a 10 minute activity period. Thoughts and suggestions are welcome!
Pictures here are of a few stops along this years travels from southeast Texas to southwest California and back again. You can see more photos on my facebook and instagram pages.
I'd love to read your thoughts on my poems. I'd also like to see some of yours. Do you enjoy reading and writing poetry?
Who are some of your favorite poets?
