Writing on Wednesdays: “Me”

I really wish that I were more creative with my poetry titles, but, alas, it is one of my many weaknesses. This poem really forced me to look inside of myself…and have fun doing so. You should try it and show me your work if you do. Ask yourself what color you are. Shape? Action? Sound? Instrument? Secret place? Natural occurrence? What hides behind your eyes? Name yourself. If you want more fun exercises like this, check out Susan Wooldridge’s book, Poemcrazy.

“Me”

I am a sky blue, encased in ice;

I am an uncut diamond, as rough as a cliff’s face;

I am twirl.

 

I am the faint echo in the crisp forest air;

I am an anthem of confidence and desperation;

I am Violin.

 

I am a crisp, green valley between two snow-capped peaks;

I am a crowded and colorful market;

I am Comet.

 

Too many words

Hide behind my eyes.

 

Too few words

Hide behind my eyes.
