Remember, this is just for fun and is not meant to be stressful.
Keep in mind what Molly Peacock's books suggested. Look at a line, a stanza, sentences, and images; describe what you like or don't like; and offer an opinion. If you missed my review of her book, check it out here.
From Sarah Gridley's book Green is the Orator, which I picked up at this year's Split This Rock Poetry Festival (click for my recap of the event):
Sonnet on Fire
Is it the space,
if let inside of, you would remember having lived in
for a particular time? That thump
was a bird meeting vertical glass. Something in here
collides with elision. Your eye apprehends what had never
had walls. Mind curls (night falls)
and afterward, forgets the problem. Much of the blueprint
is rooted to death. Much of the glass
has attributed feeling. In the faltless iris
of a random swamp
some of the cabin
could disappear. Especially in sundown all its surface
is stunning. Except when it rains,
or grasses move, the walls make no appreciable sound.
Let me know your thoughts, ideas, feelings, impressions. Let's have a great discussion...pick a line, pick an image, pick a sentence.
I've you missed the other Virtual Poetry Circles, check them out here. It's never too late to join the discussion.
