Hey, friend! Frank here with a challenge! I love you guys so much, I want to let you in on a secret of mine. My secret is that I LOVE doing lines. Yes, there's nothing better than getting off off work, going to my desk, and breaking out a line. It really just takes the edge off.
This leads me into my challenge. Lately, I've been feeling kind of low for not sharing with you guys when I get so much from it. I want to you guys do lines too! That's right, friend. I want all of Hello Poetry to do lines. Who knows? Maybe it'll catch on and the rest of the country will start doing them too! It's fun the whole family can enjoy.
All you have to do is find a line (or arguably a sentence) from a poem you've read that has really inspired you, and give it new life by making a poem out of it. Pay homage to the person who wrote it, while taking it to new heights, you know? The idea of the challenge here is to basically take something that you find beautiful and make it the foundation of one of your own poems, while keeping the spirit of the line intact. Think you can do it? Well, get to it!
If you write a poem for this challenge, please leave the following in your notes:
1) Author's name
2) Name of their poem
3) The line you are using
4) Why it inspired you.
Also, please leave the hashtag "#ilovedoinglines" in your tag area, so I can follow your entries, as well as everybody else.
Thanks, everybody. I look forward to seeing your entries, and I hope that you all enjoy doing lines as much as me.
If you want to make sure the person whose poem inspired you see your poem, just copy and paste into a message and send it to them. I'm sure they'd love to see how they've inspired you!
