This is a twist on a prompt offered by Kay Gabriel during a meeting she facilitated at the Poetry Project last year. Today, I’d like to challenge you to write a two-part poem, in the form of an exchange of letters. The first stanza (or part) should be in the form of a letter that you write either to yourself or to a famous fictional or historical person. The second part should be the letter you receive in response.
To Me, From Me
Hello myself, I say to thee,
in a letter I write to me.
I’d like to say you are okay
I think you ought to stay this way.
You work real hard and care so much
using all your time and such
and so I’d like to say today
that you can take a break to play
play with words, play with sound
Notice things that are all around
Write them up, Spit them out
Now that is what I’m talking about!
Hello to you, it’s me you know
I think you’ve got a point to show.
You care for others and your dad
making him happy makes you glad.
But don’t forget to care for you
And one more thing before you do
Think of all the people near
who love you and will hold you dear.
