The 2022 West End Poetry Festival is scheduled to be held on October 14 & 15
Theme – Music in Poetry
What is it that turns words into poetry? Poems don’t always have to rhyme, they can be in many different forms and of any length. What makes a poem a poem? It is finding the music in words that transforms prose into poetry. The essence of music can transform a page of sentences into poetry, one word, one line at a time.
Music in Poetry, a cinquain:
Slow down find the music in poetry. Just add music to prose and it becomes a poem.
