“Measuring the World”

 

The young adult review journal, YARN, celebrated World Poetry Day with a very interesting poet’s premise.   YARN invited  poets to write a poem using text from a common source.  And more …..the poem must include three phrases from the common source.  The theme was “Measuring the World: the Geography of Poetry.”  This was a fascinating prompt for a poet. Here’s the full call for submissions if you want to experiment with your own poem.  I am very lucky to have I poem I submitted on the site. I wrote the “Wherever You Are”  with ideas from my good friend from South Sudan.
