Poem Idea - Ducks or Daffodils


Ducks or daffodils…daffodils or ducks…Really think about the focus of certain sitings within a scene. Composing a poem about a single item may provide focus and direction. In this case, you single item is the complete picture. You are standing outside a restaurant and what comes waddling along, but a mother duck and her little ones. Their colors blend into the woodchips which line the bed of the daffodils.

Think about the calmness this visual brings. Think about the conversation you can share during your meal about this sight. Think about the flow of the poem you will write about the birds minding their own business and contrasting with the quite flowers behind them.

Connect to the emotion it brings. Remember poems are simple, but have all the power of a story in a little, tiny space. Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
