DAY 28 2023 – FREE CHOICE ~ #NationalPoetryMonth – 30 poems in 30 days

Y’all have been doing great!! Only two days left after this one ~ wow!!!! Today I thought you could choose any style of poetry we have done this year (or any other year) or just do a free-style poem of your own creation. And IF you can think of a fun new way to present it – do so. Add your own artwork or any way you can think of to highlight it. OR just write one up, and put it out there for others to see.

I thought I would share a few of mine that I created when I took a textile/fiber art class at the local community college during the pandemic. We started out in person but soon everything started to close down, including schools and we had to switch to online classes, which was very interesting. One project I did was to create my own fabric designs using color resist (tie-dye) and then print some of my poems directly onto the fabric (which is a technique I had to teach myself) but they turned out very cool. What can you think of? You can create a table design and print off your poem(s) to set next to it and take a photo or use clay or maybe bake something if it goes with your poem. Let your mind wander and see what you come up with.  And again, it can simply be your own poem(s) that you come up with. That takes a lot of creativity in and of itself. Cheers!!

Here ya’ go ~ (You can tell that most of these were written during the pandemic). 




PLEASE REMEMBER ~ any poetry found on this blog, written by me, is my personal property and may not be used without my permission, other than sharing it as an example in a lesson or to read it to someone. The same goes for any poems that are shared in the comments of this blog or elsewhere online as a result of this challenge. They are the creative property of the person who writes them. These poems are their original work and no one may use them without their permission. It is understood that they own the copyright to them as soon as they create them and especially once they post them. Thanks so much!

*** Also, if you choose to post your poems on your own blog or elsewhere on social media ~ 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 EACH DAY’S SPECIFIC BLOG POST for others to come here to read the instructions. I’ve spent considerable time researching the poetry forms and writing them up to share with you. Thanks for respecting my work.
