Thanks to all who have contributed Word of the Month poems so far in August. I’m enjoying your DOGS as well as your comments. We have four days remaining so here’s a challenge. Now that you’ve written one poem inspired by the word DOG, how about posting a second one that’s entirely different.
If you wrote your first one in verse, try one in free verse.
If your first was humorous, try one straight.
If your first was nostalgic, try one in a different voice.
Part of the fun in Word of the Month is to see how many ways poets respond to the same word. But it’s also instructive for every poet to see multiple possibilities in the same subject. I contend that one could take a single word and write a dozen poems, more.
Time is short. Don’t worry about making this your best poem ever. Just write.
