Imagist/Minimalist poetry awakens our senses.
I invite you to write a short poem, using as few words as possible to describe a smell, a sound, or a taste. William Carlos Williams’ Red Wheelbarrow is a good example.
between her lips
rolled paper and nicotine
choking on plant ashes
and relishing in the feel of
being lost in her own lungs and mine
breathing wintry-heat on morning-afters like
a smoke-reeking canary.
