Friday Poetry Prompt!

Happy Friday 🙂

Choose a poem that you love and memorize it. Say it to yourself over and over again, until it escapes the page and makes a home in your body. Try not to think about how the poet would want it to sound–concentrate instead on how it sounds in your voice, how it inhabits you. Once you get comfortable with the process, try this with your own poems.

 

After you memorize a poem, you could recite it to a friend’s voicemail as a nice surprise for them.   Their own private reading!
