Inspiration: Earlier in the month, we suggested lists as a way of poem-ing. One idea was to write a list of what you’d like to see changed in the world. If you did this, great — go back to poems 2 or 12 to see what you wrote. If you did not, think about just ONE thing you’d like to change in your world or our world and write a poem of how you see that coming true. Who would help? What ideas or ways of thinking would be a part of it? What would people do differently? How would people work together? What knowledge or problems solving would be required? How would your world or our looks and feel differently?
- Your opening stanza could describe the problem you see.
- The second stanza could be a shift to communicate what we can do to bring about that change.
- Your third stanza could imagine years ahead how life would be and feel better.
As always, you are free to write about anything you wish!
