How I Write
dVerse Poets Pub : Ars Poetica – Poems about Poetry
hosted by Gay Reiser Cannon
dVersePoets is continuing to celebrate a year of poets getting together and sharing their work in a supportive environment, thanks to co-founders brian miller and claudia schoenfeld
recently i posted a series of writings and samples about my fiction writing, now i have the opportunity to write a small poem about writing poetry!
this “forms” prompt, from gay reiser cannon, is focused on asking what is poetry, beginning by saying :
Most scholars agree that poetry is linked to our most primitive past, and came into existence in an expression of emotions usually accompanied by rhythms (percussion, drums, singing, chanting,) and music. Therefore it enjoys the station of one of man’s oldest and basic arts.
she then presents an interesting look at poetry in term of “content,” “form,” and “effect” and includes a short piece from Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream
i had written my poem below before reading that portion, but am glad to follow in his invaluable sensed poet’s tradition of the elements
it’s amazing the varied range of discussion in the prompts from dVersePoets, i hope you get to go by there and check it out
How I Write Poetry
i’m an air sign that
sparklers and bursting
doused with rain
sprinkles and gushers
into the earth
sandy and rocky and fertile
started as air
inevitably rise in wisps
from the tendrils of plants
as pollens of oxygen
cyclones and breezes
brush myself into
get to wonder and smile about….
