Now Try This:

List some reasons that YOU write. After you have a list, pick your favorite reason and expand on it. Turn it into a poem with concrete imagery. For example, you might say:

I write poems

because I love

to play with

flitting through the air,

arranging themselves

in never-ending


Once you write your own poem, you can share your poem on Instagram with the hash tag #WhereWordsFly. Just take a photo of it, and include WITS in the post, tag it @WITSHouston.
