Writing a wild poem doesn’t have to be a difficult task. Even if you don’t consider yourself a writer there are simple enough forms for everyone.
Acrostic poems are a simple choice. You choose a word and write one word or sentence beginning with each letter in the word. For example wild:
Haiku are another easy option. I’ve recently had one featured in the Wildlife Trusts 365 days wild book.
Haikus follow a set format. Three lines. The first line has five syllables, the second seven, then the third five syllables. Traditional zen thought is that the poem should form naturally. They shouldn’t be forced just what comes to mind. They shouldn’t have lots of time put it into them. They are capturing a quick moment and then moving on.
Flitting flower to flower
Never staying still
Please share if you give a poem a try. I’d love to read.
