Poetry - Your Turn! DUE 1/25
It's time for you to write an original poem! It can be any length, any form of poetry, and about any topic! It does not have to rhyme, but it should flow like a poem (see Tip #3).
You must use at least TWO examples of figurative language such as:
alliteration, simile, metaphor, personification, hyperbole
1. Start with a brainstorm! Look around you or think of things that inspire you! It can be something simple or something deep. Make a big list of ideas and then pick one to write about, or draw a picture to help you!
2. Don't forget sensory details to help the reader create an image in his or her mind!
3. Remember that your textbook says that poets use tools like songwriters to convey meaning and tone of their work. You can use rhythm, rhyme, and repetition to create a "sound" for your poem.
Happy writing, poets!
STEP 2: Highlight two examples of figurative language and use comments on google docs to identify what type of figurative language they are.
