Writers observe the world around them and gather ideas for writing from everywhere—the ground below, the sky above.
Now Try This:
Choose an action verb such as weave, sew, flip, forge, glue, knit, breathe, build, hammer, burn, blow. Use this verb in the first line of your poem, such as “I will burn you a story…” Then, keep writing by imagining where your story would come from (the air you breathe? the dirt between your toes? the fire in your heart?).
Once you write your own poem, you can share your poem on Instagram #WhereWordsFly @WITSHouston. Happy writing!
