Greetings. This June 13th will be the next regular Poems and Coffee meetup. I am preparing for finals in the Publishing program at Portland State right now so I need every last bit of time to finish this term on an upswing. Here is an assignment to prepare for this meetup. Create (5) four by twenty poems around the senses that define Summer to you. A four by twenty poem is a poem of four lines with a total of twenty words. Poetically define summer through your senses of sight, touch, taste, smell, and hearing, in brief, but crisp moments. The art of poetry is finding the fewest words to evoke the biggest emotions. Good luck and looking forward to seeing you again and meeting new people. We will also engage in our regular group poems which always bring out creativity and laughs. See you then!
