60+ Poems - April 2020 Poem-A-Day Challenge (x 2)
As I mentioned in my haiku post and Poem in Your Pocket Post, I have been working on Poem-A-Day challenge from 2 sources: Writer's Digest (see link) and @obscura.words on IG
Here they all are! I'm going to post them on social media over the next several weeks.
It was so much fun that I'm going to keep going and write a haiku each day. :)
For some of the Free Writing Days or even when there was a prompt, sometimes I used this random word generator to get some ideas.
I used the gogobox app to make the collages on a blank canvas and with royalty-free images in the "Content Creation & Classification" feature of the app.
Give it a try! We are good at this!
Here is a tessellation of all the poems! Below this, you can see a bigger version of each poem and some even more variations (with different photos). It changes the spirit or the meaning of the poem. :)
Bonus fun timely photo of Mona Lisa and 2 versions for nostalgia because I liked how it looked with both photos.
Day 10: Free Writing Day / Slime was a late entry I made with a random word generator -- with slime. Then I thought about slimy skin. And the I Googled some stuff with slimy skin. I learned that amphibians have slimy (wet) skin because they go in the water and reptiles do not -- which makes sense. Never thought about it though. :)
Day 12: Mind Palace / Library / Tavern is a poem about Dorothy Parker, one of the most famous writers of the 20th century.
For one of the prompts there was love / anti-love, so I wrote 2 -- inspired by the animal knigdom.
One of the prompts was: Change. I decided to write about change in the physical form like coins rather than the concept. Haha. :)
The prompts were: Massive and Unseen. I chose a few different photos for the "Unseen" poem. I like how you can see that the meaning or spirit of the poem changes with the different photo. Some are spooky and some are fun. :)
The 2 black and white photos are actually from the same larger photo. I cropped the photo in different ways and you can see that even though they came from the same image that they are very different photos.
One of the prompts was a double prompt: Look Back / Don't Look Back. I decided to write it both ways. The other prompt was: Turning.
For Look Back, I chose a few different photos again. When I searched, "Look Back," this photo with the leopard showed up, it wasn't what I was thinking about, but the leopard looked cool, so I used it. Even with the 3 different road pictures, you can see how the poem changes with the different images. :)
Don't Look Back:
Prompts: Beam (Free Writing Day, Random Word Generator) and Total [Blank] -- Total Madness
