Listing Your Obsessions

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

I’ve noticed when writing poetry and reading other’s poems that most of us have reoccurring themes throughout our poems. This repetition is a good combination of our life experience and our obsessions. Write out a list of these obsessions and experiences you know off the top of your head are repeat offenders. If the list is under fifteen items go back through your poetry and look for things that repeat throughout different poems: themes, ideas, words, etc. Once you have a list you are satisfied with write a stream of consciousness poem and see how many of these themes make an appearance.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
