For this writing assignment, I had to read the poem shown about emotions, then think about how I am feeling today and write a poem about my own feelings.
I was inspired by a past Daily Create assignment about writing a haikus, so I wrote one about my emotions.
happy and nervous
excited to graduate
hopeful and grateful
Before this class, I hadn’t written a haiku since elementary school, so I had to look up how many syllables to use online. They are pretty fun to write, and a little harder than it seems because you have to try to fit your words into certain syllables. I think this assignment connects to our overall theme because it is about choosing what words identify how you are feeling and adding them to what you are writing, like Bob Ross choosing to add what he feels is necessary to his painting.
