After two days of yard and garden work, I am ready to sit…and write a poem. For today’s poem, we will write an epistolary poem, or a letter poem. An epistolary poem can come in any form and be about any matter. I am pulled to write a letter to a younger version of myself, but perhaps you will be moved to write one to a future version of yourself. What would you say to yor 12-year-old self? Your 21-year-old self? Your 45-year old self? You 101-year-old self? What would the you today, right here &now, say to yourself on the day you graduated from college? Married? Decided not to have children? Anchor the you that you address in an event or an age in general.
Let the writing begin!
