Happy New Year!
I can hardly wait and hopefully the teams are ready.
Firstly a bit of help, maybe:
I have a virtual tool box when I head for writing poetry. It might help you so here it is:
The poetry archive website has kind of dictionaries to the right so if for instance you need to know what “a sonnet” is then just press “s” and then “a sonnet” will be there and you can read the description of sonnets – and don’t worry, there will be no specific forms requested here.
If you didn’t read through the wonderful comments and links on https://inourbooks.com/2012/12/17/the-brighter-light-a-kid-adult-poeming-month-january-2013/#comments please do it. Look up the links and learn about all those places where we come from.
I, Andrea, created prompts inspired by the links – but I only went out there and took what inspired me and what inspired me was a foundation for a good team work doing poetry. So here we go.
And who are we?
“The Yellow Ninja”
“The Brothers Dragonosaurus”
“The Erie Dearies”
“The Sparkly Snowflakes”
“The Chain Letters”
“The Awesome Earworms”
“The Alabama Tar Heels”
– and maybe some 2 or 3 more.
Now to our first prompt:
Prompt Number One!
What are we looking at?
Steven Bay in California caught a great moment here. H.C. Andersen caught some in The Ugly Duckling.
“The Seasons” were out here, too.
What poem does this picture inspire you to write?
