I’m still posting some of my poetry writing class assignments. The challenge was to create “word pictures” using only a few words that were pre-selected for us to use. Poem #1 The rainy season in Africa Drenched straw and bamboo huts Clouds of mist draped the highway As the small motor scooter putts. Poem #2 Lamenting the absurdity My mind won’t accept the lie, Considering the reality My heart cries endlessly, WHY?

Yes, the second Poem was a bit deep, but those were some of the words we were assigned to use in the class that day. I always loved the challenge. I wish there were some online classes like those we had back then. There probably are classes but this one was FREE.
