Creating Makes You Happy
I love a challenge. Especially if it’s a creative one. The #IsolationCreations initiative by the Ashmolean Museum couldn’t come at a better time. Every day they tweet out a photo of one of their objects as inspiration for a creation. That can be a drawing, photo, animation, or, in my (and our) case, a poem. So far, I’ve taken part every day. Writing a tritriplicata poem. Now, are they all good? I don’t know. But there’s a thing about syllable-based poetic forms: writing them can be good practice, as you are forced to select your words carefully. Why don’t you join me in this excercise? Get your haiku hats and tritriplicata trainers on, and let creativity flow.
