Handkerchief – a Cursive Poem
There’s only a few days left for National Poetry Month. I’m sharing my journal page this morning as a shard of poetry emerged that I felt was worth sharing. I constantly revise and this post shows my last handwritten draft and then the final one I printed in more or less ready-for-computer format.
You might also notice the page number. I try to number all pages if possible and throw in dates when I write. My aggravation level increases when an entry is undated as putting it into context is difficult sometimes. How I envy writers who keep meticulous journals and everything in chronological order!
One hundred and three pages is quite a feat given the hectic nature of this month. There’s lot of fodder gathering in these pages. I’ll share more on YouTube so you can see better the method to my madness. I will also have a companion piece with tips and quotes and other prompts if you are interested. It could be used as a teaching aid if you need a quick reference plan.
Good luck with your writing and hope this month is productive. Don’t forget Poem in Your Pocket Day is April 24.
