Honestly my view didn’t change what so ever. I hated poetry before we started this unit and I still hate it now. It’s so boring and hard to understand it’s just a waste of time because there’s sometimes so many ways to interpret just one poem and who knows what way is the right way. Writing poems with restrictions compared to not made it a little easier to understand why somethings are done but no it did not help me understand or change the way I look at other peoples poems. The difference between my first poem and my second was definitely my approach on it. The second poem was a lot easier to do than the second only because I feel as though I was a lot more prepared for the second one like I knew what was coming my way. But for the first one I think I was more scared to write because I’ve never written like a real poem before and it was just stressful. Also for the second poem I tried not to procrastinate as much like I did for the first one and that just helped a lot too because I wasn’t really worried about it then. My second poem was about how Thanksgiving goes down in my house. I talked about the craziness and about the tempers flying left and right but then I also talked about how I loved the food and how good everything always smells. I chose this topic because it was right before Thanksgiving and all I could think about was that because I could’t wait for the food any longer. Also quick story I was so mad because I couldn’t enjoy my food on Thanksgiving because I got sick and could barely swallow due to my throat being so swollen… it was not fun… I do not recommend trying to eat Thanksgiving dinner with a swollen throat. I could incorporate visuals to me poem by just adding detailed pictures to it to help the reader understand it and get a clear image of what I’m talking about in the poem, like that guy did in the video you made us watch.
