Monday Poetry Prompt

This week’s prompt: write a Renga

It is a Japanese form that is written by several poets. Each poet writes one stanza and then hands it to the next poet.

If you are part of a group or if your friends write, get 3-5 poets to agree with you to write a Renga.
If you can’t get anyone to bite, imagine 3 personalities in your head and write from a place of these personalities; like Fernando Pessoa, who invented personalities into which he would put himself and write from their perspective.

Happy Writing!
