Today I’d like to invite you to do something a little more involved than sitting down to write a poem. I want you to find a poem that you love (whether it is one you’ve written or one you’ve read) and turn it into a work of art.
There are a number of ways to do this. You could paint an image you think of while reading it, take a picture of something that reminds you of the poem. You could make a collage based on the poem, or build something if you have a workshop that reminds you of the poem. You could make a collage of various words that grab your eye in the poem, and find those words in magazines, newspaper, etc. The only limit is your imagination.
Once you have finished your project, set it out where people can ask about it, and explain what poem it came from. Maybe you’ll spark some new interest and conversation, or maybe you’ll inspire them to read poems again. Either way, you’ll have done something unique and fun.
Thanks for stopping in, see you tomorrow when we talk about a spunky blogger…
