The exercise:

Stealing an idea from a teacher of the marvelous Archi Teuthis, go have a look at some of National Geographic's photos of the day. Choose one and write a poem or some prose inspired by it, and include a link to the one you chose to use.


April 13th - Hanging laundry

The wind makes the sheets snap,
A gentle country rap
Of cotton against air,
Backed by blonde whirling hair
Freed from its Sunday cap.

She could become a pair
With the silken red square
That's broken from this trap,
Now flying with no map...
If only she would dare.

Nice one g2 - I like that you're not afraid to play with the form of your poem.

I tend to stick to similar formats in all of mine... perhaps it's time to make an exercise out of shapely poems.

Hey Marc, I know you've already read my post :D but just in case anyone else wants to look at my response to the photo thing! lol
