This week was absolute hellfire and damnation. I had to write an 8 page research paper, read Hemingway, write a paper on Hemingway, and poetry? Yeah it was really rough this week to try to poetry, so I used poems that I wrote last week. I wish I could go back there, last week was an inspiring time…
Anyway, we have things to discuss.
My first poem “Bird.” was written outside in our school courtyard. I saw this black bird swoop down into the courtyard and I was just inspired. I couldn’t figure out what to write about with my inspiration. So I wrote the word “bird” on this receipt I found in my book. The original copy of this poem is actually on a Toadstool receipt for Hemingway. Pretty great. So I imagined this happening at night in my mind’s eye, but I was writing it in the sun, so I was a little confused in my head. That was a struggle so I understand the confusing imagery. I personally like this poem, I like the idea, but I couldn’t execute well enough. Do better next time?
My second poem was also written in the courtyard, with my poem bff, Jules. In a way, I kind of wrote it for her. So yeah this is real personal. I love just spending time with her because she makes me feel better about myself and so happy, no homo. 😉 I tried to write my feeling down so I’m not sure how that went. Basically sunshine and happiness and yeah, rock n roll.
Well that’s about it for this week. I just cannot with poems this week, or life. I’m gunna be sick next week, so don’t expect anything too grand.
Also, sorry I didn’t work on the epic this week. There wasn’t enough time in the day, or night.
Hello my people! And thank you for this warm welcome back into the land of the living!! I had an AP English exam today that absolutely killed my hand, and my brain no less. Anyway we must begin our quest into the land of poetry.
Lets start with the “ABC’s” one. As I’m sure you can tell, it was part two of a larger poem at work. Basically the entire poem is about the inner workings of a gang, just with alliteration and wordy words. I super love this poem. Probably because I worked so hard on it, I mean I started the first half of it last year around this time. Granted I wasn’t working the whole time on the poem but I think you get the jist of what I’m saying. I have nothing else to say, I just love that poem. (Oh, there’s this poetry contest, think I should submit it??)
And we shall venture onward in our quest to poetry. So the epic isn’t actually that bad. I really wasn’t sure where to go next, and it’s an epic so it has to be long and awesome and I just wasn’t sure about anything. I think that the Anshar lady, who is actually the Egyptian goddess of the sky, was kinda weird. I got the idea from someone to do a hero-thing so I thought I need a god in here. So I put a goddess in there, because women, and it didn’t turn out how I wanted it to. After conspiring with my poetry bud, we decided that Mother Nature would totally be kick ass. So next week I’m going to be doing some revising and put some more mama in there.
So far so good this week 🙂 I haven’t gotten sick yet so that’s awesome for me. (I get sick a lot; like every weekend no joke.) So “yay meeeeeeeeeee!!” See you people next week, don’t miss me too much 😉
