Writing Prompt Wednesday!

A little late in the day but here it is! Try you hand at concrete poetry. What is concrete poetry?   According to Poetry Foundation it is a “verse that emphasizes nonlinguistic elements in its meaning, such as a typeface that creates a visual image of the topic.”

Its a poem that looks like something. Let’s be a little more specific with this. Write a concrete poem using one of these words as your image:



-phone (an old phone or an iPhone it doesn’t matter)

-the moon

-an hourglass

A little ambitious especially if you’re not a poetry person but hey, you could get creative and turn it into flash fiction eh? Good luck and happy writing!!
