Poetic Forms: Concrete

Hello Beautiful Thinkers,

The concrete poem uses 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 your cat you may try to shape it to look like a cat or maybe the motion of a cat’s tail. In your attempts to make the desired shape don’t forget about the actual content of the poem. I recommend deciding on the subject and writing the poem first and experimenting with your line breaks to form the shape afterwards.

Keep Dreaming Beautiful Thinkers,

The Boy In The Heart Shades
