FC Activity Report: 7/30/2020 – Poetry

Categories: Hellos With Fellows, Sarah Lehman

On July 29th, 2020, at 10:00 AM, I signed on to Zoom for a Friendship Circle session involving poetry. Following a review of the Rules of Respect, the participants were asked if they would rather have the power of flight or underwater breathing. After that, they used word magnets (or rather, an online version of such) to write poetry, as well as writing acrostics, limericks, & haikus.

 

Although I don’t write a lot of poetry myself, I do a lot of writing, and getting your thoughts down onto paper (or the digital equivalent) can be enjoyable, satisfying, and sometimes even cathartic. It helps that poems, contrary to popular belief, do not have to rhyme, and the skills needed for poetry can also be used in songwriting—I think I could certainly be a good lyricist, though someone else would have to compose the music.
