April writing prompt: New again

April National Poetry month writing prompt


Pull out your favorite poetry volume and turn to a random page. Analyze the work before you, reading line by line for details, structure and hidden meanings. What about this piece is special? Is there anything about it that resembles your own work? Close the book and try to write your own poem using that same style. The subject and spirit should be your own, but see if you can apply a new structure to your writing.
