Join Tara at Going to Walden for this week's Poetry Friday Round-Up.
After a year of academic writing and writing from my head, I still find it quite a struggle to write from my heart. My creative side may still be a little rusty, but I'm hopeful it will return.
Today, as I was visiting Margaret's space, Reflections from the Teche, I learned a new poetry form called a Skinny. You can learn more about a Skinny at the The Skinny Poetry Journal.
Margaret challenged us to write a Skinny using a metaphor that she and her students created from her metaphor dice. Although I didn't keep it as a metaphor, I still used the same words - Time is an impossible super hero.
Here is my first attempt at a Skinny...
Time, an impossible super hero, is
is time, an impossible super hero?
Nicely done, Leigh Anne. I am interested in trying out this poetic form, too. I like how your ending flowed from the top down.ReplyDelete
We all need that power of hope. Thanks for trying the form and joining in poetry love.ReplyDelete
Huzzah! Your skinny holds all kinds of truth!ReplyDelete
Great job! I hadn't heard of the skinny until I read Margaret's post. I look forward to trying it, too.ReplyDelete
Nice job; fun to see a new form :)!ReplyDelete
Nice! I tried writing a skinny poem - those are hard. What a challenge to get those creative juices flowing again.ReplyDelete
Oooh. A skinny. New form to me! Can't wait to play with it. Thank-you for sharing yours as inspiration. Keep tinkering with your words. Methinks your creativity is closer than you think. :)ReplyDelete
