Frisson of surprise
Cabal of secret meanings
Revelation of new worlds, explanation of this one
THIS IS POETRY???
YOU can join words, sounds and rhythms
experiment with the shape and form of words on the page, build and break down the parts of words
YOU can apply the familiar to the unfamiliar
YOU can make language a SURPRISE, and make it memorable
No subject is too small for a poem
No subject is too big for a poem
Delve into the world of poetry, make people listen to you, feel as you do, step into your shoes.
Please, share your "initial" poems. This is the one I wrote with you in class. (Do you remember it? I asked you to write a word for each letter of your name and surname, words that somehow "speak" about you)
Amused and amusing
Zealous Innocent Rear, quite big! Amazed Lullaby Dedicated Othello
Play with the letters, display them on the page to give movement to the wonderful letters that constitute your name, your identity.
