Poetic Form: Concrete Poems

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

This poetic form doesn’t focus on meter or rhyme or syllable count. No, this form is all about its looks. The concrete poem is all about using different and creative spacing and line breaks to write a poem that takes the shape of its subject when viewed on the page. For example, if you were writing a poem about ice skating you may try to shape it to look like an ice skate or maybe a figure eight. This one can be tough because as much as you want to form a certain shape you also don’t want to make the poem so hard to read that it becomes an unpleasant experience. Still the challenge can be very satisfying when you complete a well thought out and beautifully shaped concrete poem.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
