If you want to be hipster cool, momma will knit you a hat
If early mornings on your bike are to cold, momma will knit you a hat
If you want dress up like an elf, momma will knit you a hat
If I had to pick the best season it shall be winter
If I had to pick the most loving craft it shall be knitting
If I had to pick the most needed item in winter
It would be a hat.
Don’t mind your cold hands
I will hold them and keep them warm
And if you are cold still
I will hold you close.
Day 9 of Writing 201 Poetry: Cold; Concrete Poem; Anastrophe/Epistrophe
Some day’s of this blogging course are a blast and some a burden. Yesterday was pretty daunting when I forced myself using dactyl hexameters and pentameters. Today’s assignment would be perfect in free verse and it took me minutes to come up with a use of today’s devices.
Creating a visual poem was more difficult, I tried some digital tools but it didn’t work for me. I ended up using a tool by Robotype, where you can make an illustration with letters. The illustration isn’t a poem in itself but I definitely give visual poetry another try! Probably with my kids, it will be a fun activity.

Let me know what you think of it!

nice one.. 😀
very good, I suddenly find myself wanting a cosy home made hat !
a hat…nice picture, and I love the way your mom could make all the hats 🙂
Good piece indeed. I felt it would have been good to end the last stanza with hat too just to keep the poem flowing…just my preference 🙂
That’s a great tip, let me think about that! And it’s actually me who has been knitting those hats for my boys 🙂
Lol! Great job…I hope they love them!
