Today’s (optional) prompt is to write a concrete poem. Like acrostic poems, concrete poems are a favorite for grade-school writing assignments, so this may not be your first time at the concrete-poem rodeo. In brief, a concrete poem is one in which the lines are shaped in a way that mimics the topic of the poem. For example, May Swenson’s poem “Women” mimics curves, reinforcing the poem’s references to motion, rocking horses, and even the shape of a woman’s body. George Starbuck’s “Sonnet in the Shape of a Potted Christmas Tree” is – you guessed it – a sonnet in the shape of a potted Christmas tree. Your concrete poem could be complexly-shaped, but relatively simple strategies can also be “concrete” —  like a poem involving a staircase where the length of the lines grows or shrinks over time, like an ascending (or descending) set of stairs. Happy writing! – Maureen Thorson

Time & Space Concrete Poem –

©🦊VixenOfVerse

Time and space are linked in some



inexplicable quantum way,
to me. It seems the
further the Webb
Telescope
travels
in
.
.
.
.
space
the further
back in time we
go. Not as far back
as the Big Bang but further
back than the Hubble Telescope went.
