DAY #5: Concrete Poetry

DP #28: Poem of the Day

Read the poem of the day thoughtfully. Then, write a response to it. Your response can be an explanation of what it means, a focus on a particular line you like, or it could be the inspiration for your own creative response in the form of a poem, story, or memory. The key is to let the poem inspire you to write.

Take ten minutes. Be prepared to share with the class.


Try writing a concrete poem with a shape which compliments its message or topic.

Once you’re happy with your poem, draw it in your poem book on day five. Consider taking a picture and posting it on your blog as well!
