"Enthusiasm is everything. It must be taut and vibrating like a guitar string."
"But the lover's power is the poet's power. He can make love from all the common strings with which this world is strung."
"We are only puppets, our strings are being pulled by unknown forces."
I want you to think about strings. I use to play Cat's in the Cradle, when I was a kid. I think of brown paper packages tied up with strings. C'mon I know you know this song, these are a few of "My Favorite Things" by Julie Andrews, in the movie "The Sound of Music". The strings of a cobweb, the string section of instruments, how unique their sound. Perhaps you will think of flying a kite.. So write a poem that you can tie a memory to with strings! Did I string you along... ;D
