Poetry Challenge #81

Make a List

In a list poem, you can list things you like (animals, colors, makes of cars, playground games), signs of a season, tasks you have to do, items in a category, or what you’re going to do today. Once you have your list, play with the order. Choose better words that sound the same (maybe rhyme, or use alliteration). Can you make the poem sound like it has an ending?

Try writing a list poem. What are your plans for the day today? Or use one of the ideas above.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
