A Poem Without A Title . . .


Challenge for you



Hi!  Your Challenge:    "A poem without a title is like:  you  fill  in  the  blank."

Creative and inspirational responses follow below.   

I recently heard an interview with a lovely Aboriginal poet.  She said that names have power and that to name something is to define it.  Naming it helps you know it.  I agree.  

It is the same with a poem.   A title affects the concept and reception of the poem.  

 Imagine a world without titles . . . What would music CDs be like without titles to the songs?  How would radio stations be without song titles (songs=poetry)?  How would you find the artist's work?  How could there be top 30 lists?

 What makes a person leave a poem unfinished ? without a title?
Laziness?  Arrogance?  Is it a belief that the work will be so outstanding that a title is unnecessary?  
How, then, would the poem be introduced to the rest of the world?  

Fill in the blank.

I'll publish your response with your e-mail addresses or URL to your website.


Have fun with it.

Get inspired.

a game with no winner.

a cave with no entrance

a shout with no echo

a lighthouse with no light

a skater with no skates

a kitten with no purr

an ocean without a beach

a Song without a melody

a river with no beginning.
