For today’s prompt, write a pattern poem. Yes, this is based off today’s prompt number: 3-6-9; the next number would be 12, right? So yeah, there are number patterns, but also patterns in how people act and re-act to situations, patterns in animal behavior, and even weather patterns (I’m sure my meteorologist/storm chasing brother appreciates me mentioning the weather in one of my prompts). Whatever pattern you follow, I hope you have fun.

Revision doesn’t have to be a chore–something that should be done after the excitement of composing the first draft. Rather, it’s an extension of the creation process!

In the 48-minute tutorial video Re-creating Poetry: How to Revise Poems, poets will be inspired with several ways to re-create their poems with the help of seven revision filters that they can turn to again and again.

Here’s my attempt at a Pattern poem:

“Patterns”

I love to sit back and look for patterns
in certain types of tile and wallpaper
as if pursuing a long forgotten
or perhaps never discovered cavern.

When the narrator in Charlotte Perkins
Gilman’s story “The Yellow Wallpaper”
sees and helps the woman shake the pattern
from the wall, I wonder if it’s the end,

or signifies it is time to begin.
