Read the full post here.

Today’s featured participant is Judy Dykstra-Brown.

Our poetry resource is the YouTube channel of the Woodberry Poetry Room, offering more than a hundred video recordings of readings, talks, seminars, and conversations between poets.

Today’s prompt asks you to write a poem about a particular letter of the alphabet, or perhaps, the letters that form a short word. Think about the shape of the letter(s), and use that as the take-off point for your poem. Example – Here is my translation of Eduardo Galeano’s “The letters of the word AMOR”:

The A has its legs open.
The M is a seesaw that comes and goes between heaven and hell.
The O is a closed circle, it will choke you.
The R is scandalously pregnant.

All of the letters of the word AMOR are dangerous.

I enjoyed reading Judy’s amusing poem based on a Swedish proverb from my favourite website resource from yesterday.

I will definitely be back to dip into the Woodberry Poetry Room resource. What a rich resource.

As soon as I read the alphabet prompt today I knew exactly what I wanted to write. So off to do just that now before today gets really busy!
