Concrete Poetry Concrete Poetry Concrete poetry involves arranging the letters or words that describe an object into a visual image that also describes

the object. It is a kind of painting with letters or words as the medium. Creating Concrete Poetry Look around for objects that have interesting forms or the patterns they create. Think about what you want to say or convey about your

subject. What is interesting about your subject, is it the shape, smell, or taste? On a piece of looseleaf, make lists of words you might use to describe these different characteristics. Ideas

Flag Instruments Raindrops Snowflakes

Small Wide Tall

Snakes Lightning Wind Eye

Waves Teardrops Ripples in water

Explode Avalanche Flower growing Flower blooming

Animals Fire Jumping

Writing Concrete Poetry Using your list of possible subjects and descriptive words, create a concrete poem using one of those subjects. Remember that the arrangement of the words is as important (if not more important) than the words themselves.

You may want to use colour in your poem. Place your lists, and any writing in your writing folder at the end of class.
