This one is easy! It’s all about YOU!!
I am the one who…
Write a list poem. What is it you do? What makes you you?
Think about the things you do in your spare time. Think about the things you have to do. Think about what you wear, or eat, or read, or sing, or…anything.
You can start each line with “I am the one who…” or “I am…” or when you really get going you can connect the lines with “and”. Whatever you do, have fun!
Remember the rules:
Set the timer for 7 minutes
Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
If the prompt moves you, follow it. If it sparks something else, go with it! Our 7-Minute Poetry Challenge is not about writing great poetry; or writing what is expected; it’s not even about writing anything good. It’s about one thing, writing IT!
And if you try this, be sure to let me know in the comments! Or, if you’re really daring, put your poem in the comments!
