The Daily Poem and Freewrite
  • Why freewrite?
  • Why a daily poem?“The chief fault in your style is its lack of distinction—something which is inclined to grow with the years. . . . and the only way to increase it is to cultivate your own garden. And the only thing that will help you is poetry which is the most concentrated form of style.”—F. Scott Fitzgerald, in a letter to his daughter, July 1940

Until I saw the sea

could splinter a whole sea of blue.


did I know before

a sea breathes in and out

upon a shore.

Lilian Moore
