Often, I fall into the trap of relying on the visual image–and I bet I’m not alone in this.
Today, the poem you choose to work on takes a test:
Does it have at least one image from each of the five senses? If not, where do those other senses fit in your poem, and where do they lead you?
Looking at what you want to say or what the poem wants to say, which sense is most important? For example, a poem might weight auditory images more heavily. Another poem might weight smell or touch.
Can you add more images for the sense of your poem?
