For today's prompt, write a movie-inspired poem. I think I may have had this prompt previously (somewhere in the 200s or 100s), but I can't help it: I'm excited about the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens movie. So feel lucky, I'm widening the net to all movies, because I was tempted (only briefly) to limit it to the Star Wars universe. Now poem!

Re-create Your Poetry!

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 Movie-Inspired Poem:

“Luke's Song”

You don't see green on Tattoine
and Alderaan has disappeared.
No Yoda masks for Halloween,
you don't see green on Tattoine;
it's more a Tusken Raider scene,
and the Hutts rule the roost 'round here.
You don't see green on Tattoine,
and Alderaan has disappeared.
