Imagery Poems

“One is trying to record the precise instant when a thing outward and objective transforms itself, or darts into a thing inward and subjective.“

-Ezra Pound

notice
Notice…

The point of the poem is to ruminate, to pause and consider 1 important image

The beauty and grace of haiku is that they are almost meditative.

Amidst all else in the world… We select 1 image and devote a poem to it.

We are meant to be in the moment with that item, thing, or element of nature. We are meant to reflect on our experience with that object

The simplicity of the poem is its greatest strength. The challenge is creating such a powerful emotional response from limited text… Again, the significance is placed on the image and our relationship to it

  • Imagist poetry does the same thing… just in a slightly longer format
