So, I read over at The Daily Post that they are now offering Blogging U. On Demand. No need to register, you can just jump in and participate in any of the ‘courses’ they offer. Soooooo, I decided to give Writing: An Intro To Poetry……First assignment…Water.
Let’s get started with the essentials: today, write a poem about water. It can be a murky puddle or a glistening lake. Amniotic fluid or your grandfather’s glass of Seltzer. A bath, a hose, or an oasis. It’s time to pay poetic homage to H2O.
Looking for an extra challenge? For today’s poem, experiment with haiku — a short poetic form that works particularly well with nature-themed poetry. Read more about it on our poetry resource page.
