Let’s go for super simple today – however, sometimes a simple poetry form can be deceiving – some rather profound poems can be produced with some very simple formats.
Today we are
going to write an “ing” Poem ~ yep, an “ing” Poem
basically, you choose a noun (seasons and animals make good choices, but any
noun that comes to mind will be great) and then list 4-6 (give or take) verbs
associated with that noun and add “ing” to them. Give it a try – perhaps,
create several “ing” poems.
NOUN (also is your title)
verb + ing
Here are a
couple of examples:

if you choose to post your poems on your own blog ~ that’s awesome. But PLEASE
don’t just copy and paste my daily instructions, but rather post your poem on
your blog or your FB wall or wherever AND LINK BACK TO THIS BLOG POST for

researching the poetry forms and writing them up to share with you. Thanks for
respecting my work.
