Why don’t you kick off your shoes and stay awhile?
Hello, I’m a Writer
I delve deep
to find the beauty in the little things.
Sometimes I just stare at the moon.
Lots of times, I’m slightly goofy,
but I always stand for what’s right.
I admit: I’m a bit mysterious.
DON’T tell me NOT to be loud.
I can enjoy a good challenge.
I’m not as fragile as I look.
Watch for my thorns.
I wrote that poem in my teens with the help of a program called Creative Writer 2. (<—-That’s an affiliate link. Thanks for supporting my Brainstorms!) I looked through all the clip art on the program and grabbed any picture that tickled my fancy. Then I built the poem around the clip art and discarded the unused items. The finished product decorated my bedroom door for years. I’m not sure if I still have it in my files somewhere. I hope to illustrate this poem at some point in the future. Can you build a poem around a series of pictures? You can use photographs, clip art, magazine clippings, or your own art. Try to follow a theme. Decide: do you want to write a free form poem? a sonnet? haiku? something else? It’s up to you! I would love to hear about your “finished” product!
