DAY 29 – NAPOWRIMO 2017 – “Snow”

Published 29th April 2017 by viewsofpreethib

Day 29 – And now for our (optional) prompt. Today, I’d like to challenge you to take one of your favorite poems and find a very specific, concrete noun in it. For example, if your favorite poem is this verse of Emily Dickinson’s, you might choose the word “stones” or “spectre.” After you’ve chosen your word, put the original poem away and spend five minutes free-writing associations – other nouns, adjectives, etc. Then use your original word and the results of your free-writing as the building blocks for a new poem.

My favorite poem is by Robert Frost called “Dust of Snow”.

Dust of Snow

The way a crow
Shook down on me
The dust of snow
From a hemlock tree

Has given my heart
A change of mood
And saved some part
Of a day I had rued.

– Robert Frost

Snow

In the movies I see,
Beautiful scenes,
And how I wish,
To see, feel, experience reality,
Covered in snow,
Are Trees with no leaves,
Benches are lonely,
Streets lights in night are shiny,
Lakes are frozen and icy,
People singing merrily,
Amazing ice skating,
Kids are playing,
Snowman’s at making,
Santa Claus said to come from chimney,
The snow covered bridges are calling,
To see the sight of beauty,
The sight of white,
The snow,
Gives a mystic feeling…
