I am an aspiring poet/ memoirist/ screenplay writer. For my first contribution to this site I wanted to suggest a group/collaborative poem. We can start one and see where it leads us.
The parameters are: use as much specific, concrete imagery, active verbs and vivacious nouns as possible. Try to add to the internal sounds of the previous line.
If this goes well...or even if it doesn't fly at all...I will likely post some more of these type of group writing excercises.
Graphic artists, photographers, directors, etc...don't feel that you are left out. Feel free to add images that tie in with the poem!
So...on that note...what follows is the opening line...have at it!
Sunlight slants through the blinds
