Poetry Challenge #14

Remember First! 

Do you remember the first of something in your life? Maybe you remember the first time you rode a bike, the first time you visited someone by yourself, or the first time you went somewhere by yourself. Maybe you have early memories of reading or writing or hiking. Who did these things with you? Where were you? What did you like? What feelings do you remember?

Make a list of anything you remember about some first event. The more things you write down, the more you’ll remember. Add detail and play with the words and order to make the best poem you can. Try to repeat sounds for effect.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think too much; just do it.
