Poetry Imagery

Carolyn Forche describes an affair on a train, Plath a room where her life changed. Now it’s your turn: Recall some place that you visit often, or a place where you occasionally spend time, but one that allows your imagination to soar. In a fifteen-minute free-writing session, describe both that place and one or two of the mental journeys you’ve taken from there. (Don’t limit yourself: This could be a special spot by a stream, a chair where you read good books, or even a movie theater or an art gallery.) When you’re through, go back and circle those words and phrases that do the best job of capturing the concrete, sensory detail of both the place and the experiences you wrote about.

 

There are distinctive universes

 

That no one but creative energy can make

 

Universes that is unique in relation to our own

 

Delightful, quiet and quiet

 

We can see it in dreams

 

What’s more, need to be there until the end of time

 

I have a fantasy world as well

 

One where just bliss dwells

 

My fantasy takes me there

 

Where I spend snippets of bliss

 

Where the air is new and cool

 

What’s more, delightful odors are surrounding me

 

Where the sky sparkles brilliant blue

 

Where the feathered creatures sings perfectly

 

Their melodies applaud the magnificence

 

What’s more, the works of master omnipotent

 

A spot where lakes are crustal clear

 

What’s more, towering tops in encompassing

 

There is no rush to get up

 

What’s more, be to office on time

 

No stresses over paying bills

 

No stresses over staple

 

I don’t need to stress over my wellbeing

 

Neither about my auto separating

 

The battles of life are abandoned

 

As I enter my fantasy world

 

This fantasy world is entrancing

 

Just on the off chance that it were valid
