#NaPoWriMo Day 28 (WIP)


#NaPoWriMo Day 28 Poetry Challenge

The video resource today was suggested by longtime Na/GloPoWriMo participant Elizabeth Boquet, of Oaks to Acorns. She and a fellow group of poets in Lausanne, Switzerland, have been engaging with the concept of meta-poems – which are poems about poems! In this video, the poets Al Fireis, Lily Applebaum, Dave Poplar, and Camara Brown discuss Emily Dickinson’s We learned the Whole of Love.” You can find additional background and video discussions of other meta-poems here.

And now for our daily (optional) prompt. As you may have guessed, today I’d like to challenge you to try your hand at a meta-poem of your own. If you’re having trouble coming up with a poem about poetry, and would like to take a look at a few examples, you might check out the Wallace Stevens and Harryette Mullens poems featured in the article about metapoetry linked above, or perhaps Archibald MacLeish’s Ars Poetica or Kendel Hippolyte’sAdvice to a Young Poet.”

Happy writing!

A Short Haiku

Sonnet Haiku

I am actually still playing with yesterday’s sonnet prompt but I thought this would fit here nicely for today a poem about poems.

Sonnet (Haiku)

Sod it, sonnets are
too much messing. Iambic
pentameters suck.
