Poetry heals the wounds inflicted by reason. — Novalis
Day 17 Prompt!!!
Pick a poem you like or admire (or hate passionately) and respond to it, line by line with your own poem. You do NOT have to imitate or parody it… but you can do that too. You might answer a question posed by the poet, you might ask a question in response to what it written. You might take it to a different place, expand it, contract it or reinvent it. Do try to isolate the first lines of the poem and see where it takes you. Re-write them, change them into your own. When you’re done, take a few minutes to revise it, perhaps subtly changing it, perhaps drastically re-writing what you started with. Don’t spend more than an hour on it, however—later, next week, next month you do more to it as you wish. After you’ve written the poem… tell us the poem that inspired it; if there’s a link available to where someone might read it… include that if you can.
