I love writing. I imagine you do, too, or you wouldn’t be on WordPress. Oh, maybe you don’t think you’re a writer, but you are entertained and informed by good writing, and so you are an avid reader. Whichever the case, you know writing and reading are important components of learning. Folks who only get their news from TV or the spoken word miss a lot!
As a writer, I enjoy learning new skills, new techniques, new styles. I love poetry and I enjoy learning new poetry forms. Today I discovered http://www.poetcollective.org As I was looking to learn more about Joseph’s Star Poem, the site introduced me to Punnett, a nine line poem. I’ll try it tomorrow. But for today, here is the Joseph’s Star, a 7 line poem with the word count of 1/3/5/7/7/5/3. Try it! It’s fun!
Pen your love
To all your friends
Write only encouragement
Try to be inspiring
Dwell on things happy
But do write
If you try this Joseph’s Star poetry form, post one for me in the comments section, would you? I’d love to see your rendition.
