  • This project has no specific instructions. 

  • Your poem could be a sonnet, haiku, free verse, or any other form you prefer. 

  • Feel free to let your creativity flow and explore strong emotions or feelings associated with love, grief, joy or longing. Enjoy the process of weaving together imagery, emotions and ideas through your words. 

Ready? Read the rules first.
