Craft, Poetry Prompts

Monday Poetry Prompt

This week’s prompt: anaphora – a specific anaphora

Here is the definition of Anaphora: the repetition of the first word or phrase in sentences or lines in a poem.

You can, of course, write a poem with any word or phrase as the anaphora. But if you are up for the challenge, I’d like to ask you to title your poem ‘Why I Write Poetry’ and then start every line with ‘Because’.

This is a prompt after Major Jackson. Here is a link to the first page of his 2-page poem. Apologies, I can’t find the full poem online. If you can, please post the link as comment to this post.

Happy Writing!
