Poetry wasn't invented to be hard to understand or to be­long to a few people only. It was invented to carry crucial Match the authors and the titles of their works. things through space and time, to help the mind hold and share the heart's treasure. Poetry is for you. It's in you — in the rhythm of your heartbeat and your walking, in the music of your talk.

A good way to begin writing poetry is to focus on objects, things around you, stuff. Pick a piece of the material world that matters to you, whether you love, hate, treasure, or are just intrigued by it. Look at this object as if you'd never seen it before. Explore its texture with your hands. Listen to the Match the authors and the titles of their works. sound when you touch it or tap it on a table. What does it smell like? What do you think it would taste like? Then write down every response the object calls forth in you.

Keep writing, and don't forget to use your senses. Think about strong emotional moments in your life. You can focus on something recent or an experience from a long time ago.

Writing is like any other discipline — like dancing, or play­ing a sport. To be good, you have to spend a lot of time prac­tising, learning the moves, gaining strength and agility. If you're really trying, nothing is wasted.

(by George Ella, 1999)
