We Write Poems
Wednesday and welcome to the New Year of writing!
This day we’ll step aside from the usual posting, giving one last breath to return from this season’s change. Beneath all the words we write are all the many words we read. And surely they make a difference for us, all here in this singular sea of common experience. What books have you read during 2012 that have had an impact upon your sense of writing?
Such books hardly even need be limited to poetry. Don’t you find that some prose informs your writing desires as much as literal poetry? So perhaps you’ll share your most favored few (1 – 3) books discovered during this last year. Finding just that “most right” book, especially with a poetic quality isn’t always easily done. Maybe you can help us along this path.
Title and author, and perhaps just a sentence or few about the book and/or its value to you, that would be great.
Thursday, tomorrow we’ll return to our more conventional
poem writing prompts. See you then!
