Prompt #29: Paying Homage
Do you have a favorite poem? Something that speaks to your heart, always giving you a little zing every time you read it?
For me, just about anything by Khalil Gibran moves me. I realize that his poetry may have fallen out of ‘fashion,’ or worse, that modern poets find him sentimental. That doesn’t change the way his work moves me.
Consider your own favorite poem [I realize you may have to narrow your search down arbitrarily].
Then choose a line. Use it as the first line of your new poem.
