my shadow self
As we wind down our time together, I want to encourage you to continue reading and writing poetry. Because I know I've given you a lot to explore, today, I want to share three poems + give you a writing prompt.
Three poems that I simply love:
"Sonnet, Without Salmon" by Sherman Alexie
"Song of Myself I and II" by Walt Whitman
"Otherwise" by Jane Kenyon
A Weekend Prompt (because I just want to give you one more prompt): Write a poem to or about your shadow self.
Possible places to begin: You could write a letter to your shadow. You might want to name your shadow (that could be the title of your poem). Consider describing your shadow or a day in the life of your shadow. You could pair a poem note with a shadow photo if you've taken one this week.
