Prompt #68, It’s Post Your Poems Day!
Thirteen Ways of Looking
We Write Poems:
How many ways, how many views, how many poetic points of view did you find to attend the specific object of your poem? Margo asked us to stretch and expand our perspective on one given subject for our poem this week, each representing one smaller distinct experience expressing, defining that poetic relationship. She illustrated this poetic format by one poem of Wallace Steven’s, “Thirteen Ways of Looking at a Blackbird“. This prompt really calls upon our imaginations to examine and re-examine something we might less often consider in such detail. Please share your poems with us now!
Thanks again Margo Roby for this elemental and delicious prompt idea.
Tomorrow we’ll present another fine suggested community poem prompt!
