Concrete Poems!

Today at Dever, we experimented with concrete poems! We read “Steam” by Sabrina Guo and discussed how she used shape to impact the way the reader read her words and experienced the moment. We decided that she used the form to slow us down and to make us think and to calm us. Here are a few of our concrete poems!



“Writing poetry makes me feel like I can see myself, like I can see my reflection, but not in a mirror, in the world. I write and I know I can be reflected.”
-Oscar S.

“Writing poetry makes me feel free.”
-Buenda D.

“Writing poetry is like your best friend.”
-Jessica M.
