I've used poems in my latest collection : 'Guinea Pig town and other poems about animals' as a basis to explore such topics as:
- one word to a line poems
- adverb poems
- simple repetition poems, 'over leaf, under leaf'
In the process, I write an example poem then construct scaffolding for others to 'take the plunge' into the fascination and satisfying realm of writing.
Here's a sample from my texture poem.
'feathers made into moon faces
when owls hunt at night"
And of course another wonderful photo of animals (and Quinn) at my recent book launch.
