Verse First ~ Edit to Elevate
Welcome to Verse First, where simple notions prompt amazing poems.
EDIT TO ELEVATE
What Is Poetry?
Today, write a poem about something exceedingly ordinary, something completely mundane. Edit it to elevate it. Turn it into art. Choose your words carefully, using only those conveying your specific intent. Remove everything that doesn't serve you well. If you're comfortable, leave a note below your post inviting others to critique in order to further elevate the work.
I look forward to reading your art. ~ Kim
