Phases Four and Five – Investigate and Apply

Explore various forms of poetry.  Look at how different poems are constructed.  Examine the “rules” or conventions of different types of poems.  Choose a particularly powerful feeling of comfort situation from your brainstorm.  Can you write effective passages following the various poetry forms?

Create a portfolio that includes a variety of poem forms, all focussed on the specific feeling of comfort you have selected.  Aim to have 12 – 15 poems, with at least 8 different forms.

Many how-to-instructions for a variety of poems are listed below.  Seek out other types of poems not included on this list and see if you can master them as well.  Read poems and analyze what you like about them.  Try to apply those things that appeal to you in your own poetry.
