Prompt: Use one of your gathered words as a title and get to poeming

Today, let's just get right to it and write a poem. In the video, I explain the idea of starting with a title (using just one word as that title) and writing the poem from there. Use the word list you've created, the one I gave you, or maybe even just open the dictionary and see what you find.

I also read Mary Oliver's poem "Ocean" from Red Bird and Billy Collins' poem "Morning" from his collection Sailing Alone Around the Room: New and Selected Poems. You can hear Billy Collins read his poem (and read it yourself) over at Poetry Foundation. You can read Mary Oliver's poem here.
