Have you ever considered infusing your novel or short story with a splash of poetry? I’m mostly a prose writer, but the value of dropping a poem in your prose cannot be underestimated (think Hunger Games). A poem can break up the visual monotony of paragraphs and thread a recurring theme.
Yesterday I spent most of my blog time visiting other writers’ blogs and making comments (what fun!). In the process, I discovered a writer of uncommon talent. Her many modes of artistic expression include art, photography, and poetry. I was particularly moved by her poems. Her poetry resounds with raw rectitude. Rousing and provocative, her verse wraps the reader in layers of meaning that break and reshape into loops of creative thought. Stimulating! Check her out at Perle’s Ink.
Drawing inspiration from my feedback tour, I’m posting a poem about writers.
Hey, Writer, What do Your Words Do?
roar like thunder
Thanks for stopping by!
