Sometimes I feel like a poet and sometimes I don’t. I hear the Almond Joy jingle in the background.
I decided to create a list of what “makes” a poet a poet. This is my list:
1.) You write whenever and wherever you can.
2.) You wear your pen as an accessory–it’s easily accessible.
3.) You let a curious thought be your guide across a blank page.
4.) Ink drips from your smile.
5.) Your heartbeats like a drum, a melodical simile.
6.) You sometimes come home with pockets full of verses you scribbled throughout the day.
7.) You keep an idea or thought journal and refer to often when writer’s block strikes.
8.) You write micropoetry.
9.) You sigh in metaphors.
10.) You experiment in scribbles.
Now it’s your turn! Let’s see how long we can keep this list going!
What makes you a poet? OR What do you think makes a poet a poet?
Feel free to add to the list by commenting on this post!!!! 😀 I look forward to reading your additions to the list!!!!
