Poetry and Place

This approach to poetry provides probationary poets with lots of support.
Start with a setting. Pick a place- the city-street- backyard-beach- kitchen- You get the idea!

The use of the senses is apparent in the approach  but I suggest providing writers some choices regarding the order of the starting words, and do not make it compulsory to use all the suggested starting words. In fact, they should be encouraged to create their own opening words. It will make for greater variety and individuality. The structure is there as an initial support.

I see…..
I hear….
I watch….
I smell….
I enjoy…..
I taste…..
I want…..
I wish…..
I imagine……..
