I Remember

Prompt #5: Remembering Poem

• Write, don’t type, the words “I remember…” 10 times in list format on a sheet of paper. Think of a specific event from your childhood—the place, the people, the smells, the things that were strange—and write each recollection after the words I remember.

• Cut each I remember into individual slips so it looks like my crazy mess of fortunes. Sort, order and reorder your slips of paper to cultivate the most meaning.

• When you are happy… type and read aloud to your cat, dog or window.
