I know very little about poetry. I dabbled with rhyme when I was very young, and again in my teen years when angsty and sad, but I wouldn’t have a clue about poetic form. I’ve never studied it.
A while ago my cousin sold me a couple of books he used for uni, including this one:
And in the last few days I have started reading it.
Here I am in the car during a recent short trip to Coffs Harbour. My boyfriend loves surfing and I can barely swim. So while he surfed, I read in the car.
I did manage to try stand up paddle boarding though which I loved.
So anyway, poetry. I’ve decided to make a little project of this book, trying every poetic form in it, across a certain theme which will be revealed soon. I also haven’t forgotten about my other project Everything He Knows About Writing which I will be back to very shortly.
Writings are happening!
