Poetry Day 2 of ? in April: Something That Dreams Demand

Poetry day 2 of ? in the month of April.

I’m learning so much from other poet bloggers. Yesterday I read in Margaret Simon’s blog about anaphora poems. Margaret explains this form of poetry as —

the repetition of a word or group of words at the beginning of successive phrases.

Read some lovely examples of Anaphora poems on Margaret’s blog here.

What to write about though… hmm.

Something that repeats. Something that needs repeating, again and again. Hmm….

 

Something that kindles my passion.
Something that wakes me in the middle of the night.
Something that drives me through blurry-eyed mornings.
Something that makes my heart pound.
Something that defeats me irregardless.
Something that pushes me to try again.
Something that require more than I think I have.
Something that reaches more than I can imagine.

Something that dreams demand 

 

Thank you fellow poet bloggers who are reaching  for more in their lives and in their teaching. It’s nice to journey together. Check Leigh Anne, Michelle, Margaret, KevinMary Lee, and Cathy’s blogs for more poetry inspiration.

  1. Oh I love the repetition! I tried to use some of it in my poems this morning! So glad to be on this journey of poetry with you!!! I love the last line! The combination of the words dream and demand…powerful!!

  2. I like “something that wakes me in the middle of the night.” Don’t you love this technique? Somehow the structure is freeing. Thanks for the link up, ping back, whatever it is called. We are on this journey together.

  3. I love this because I have really been focused on my dream lately. My dream does all of these to me – especially requires more than I think I have. Thanks for bringing along for the ride!

  4. I finally found you, Julieanne. I didn’t know you were all gathering. Great to try something new here. I love all the things you added, and love where that ‘something’ came from!

  5. I just love that you are doing this!

    Maybe it’s my life right now, but these lines spoke to me:
    Something that defeats me irregardless.
    Something that pushes me to try again.
