When I was in sixth grade, I won a poetry contest! Okay, I got second place, but it was a pretty big contest. I'd played around with shaping words into poetry before, but this was the first time I was recognized as being a pretty good poet for a kid my age.

Some people think being a poet is hard, but poets are just people who find unique words to describe interesting things: emotions, places, every day objects, nature. I find that most people have the ability to think like a poet every once in a while. I believe it's good for learners to think poetically every once in a while
There are two types of poet out there: the poet who rhymes and the poet who writes in free verse.
Back in sixth grade, I was obviously a poet who liked to rhyme.
As an adult, I prefer to write my poems in free verse. The point is that I still challenge myself to write a poem every once in a while. This keeps me feeling artistic.
In your notebooks, create a list of topics that you think are truly interesting and that would be interesting to think about using unusual words and descriptions. Your list can contain the names of emotions, places, every day objects, nature, or a variety of other types of topics.
Bausele's watches are all inspired by Australia and contain local elements in the crown, but the replica watches sale
pushes the envelope further with an Australian-manufactured case. The interestingly dappled ring surrounding the dial is made of replica watches sale
a lightweight ceramic-like material with an appearance and texture similar to granite. Bauselite is manufactured locally in replica watches uk
by a new company called Australian Advanced Manufacturing Pty Ltd., which was formed as a joint venture between Bausele and Flinders University. Component manufacturing is rare in Australia, and as an Aussie myself, I'm glad to see that replica watches sale
is supporting the development of local industry. While wearing the Terra Australis, I often found myself idly running my fingers over the Bauselite case it has a unique feel unlike any of the materials I'm used to in replica watches uk
and this textural element is certainly a selling point for those looking for something just a tad different from typical timepieces.
The greatest thing about the poetry-writing process should be that you get to find your own topic that is worthy of a poem. Poetry is all about the person who writes it.
