Taking a class on modern poetry is killing my productivity.
I want to do nothing but read poems all the time. I want to write notes in the margins. I want to read and re-read them. Worst of all, I want to do nothing but write poems. All. The. Time.
Instead of doodling in the margins of my class notes–a habit I’ve had since 6th grade–I write rhymes. I write down fun words. I toy with themes. I capture images. I daydream about what to write next.
Only a few have made it to maturity and onto the blog. Assignments crowd my schedule, and there’s no time for poeming. I can’t be selective with my thoughts. There are too many.
So here are some ideas. Tell me in the comments which one you want the most. The one idea to get the most comments in favor of that theme wins.
- Ameryn’s Theme Song
- Victory over fear
- Perspectives on solitude–pro, con, and why that perspective might have changed
- A Show Tune–theme pending, though love is the obvious choice
- A sonnet
- Coming of age
- Something whimsical addressed to dead authors and poets
- The nature of beauty
