Here’s today Poetry Push for List Poems. It’s a great way to warm-up your poetic muscles for the day. If you want to read more about list poems, check out the original post.
What does this prompt make you think of? Brainstorm a list first. What’s puzzling to you right now? What are the pieces you need to complete something? Or maybe go off in a completely different way. This is just a warm-up, so don’t spend a lot of time on it, five to ten minutes to create a list poem inspired by the Poetry Push card above. For some examples from previous weeks, click on the poetry push tag at the bottom of this post.
Make sure to add your name to the poem when you post it.
Blue I thought was sky
Turns into water.
An eye is truly
The knot on a tree trunk.
Red smudge becomes
An autumn leaf.
Each piece, up close,
Changes when matched
With its neighbors–
Nothing what I thought
–Jennifer R. Hubbard
Lovely images in this one, Jenn and the ending twists and yet fits. 🙂 Thank you for sharing. (Sorry for the delay.)
You captured the frustration of life’s puzzles very well, Anne. We may never know the answers, but at least we keep trying to put the pieces in the right order.
Thanks, Susan. I’ve been enjoying these poetry prompts.
