Victoria hosts the bar tonight at dVerse. Here is her prompt. Why not join us in the pub for some creative and inspiring poetry?
This poetic device is just what it says: a catalog or list of things—an inventory of people, places, things, ideas. But it is no simple shopping list or to-do list, though I suppose it could be if a little thought and a dab of poetic creativity is added to the mix. To be successful, this form is a well thought-out, complex process.
Poets use the list poem for writing humor, irony or satire, opinion, descriptive poetry, and children’s poetry.
So, for today, let’s write list poems. There are a few ideas already mentioned in this post, but I’m sure you will come up with something more to amaze…maybe even a poetic shopping list. Take it wherever you like.
there are many signs
the wink of an eye
the curl of a smile
that wrinkly frown
an outward breath
the one with soul
right through me
