“What leaf / Who I am / My life / my soul / A garden” Sensory Reflection with South Loop Poetry Club!

Last week at South Loop Poetry Club, we looked over the various sensory poems we wrote in class together. Across our poems, we used sights, textures, sounds, tastes, and smells to describe our experiences and stories. We rated our poems and how we felt about them in retrospect. While we spent most of the time reflecting, we also had some new poems combining all of our knowledge of this past unit. We are excited to move into our next unit about poetic forms.
