Welcome to "The Zen Artist's" very first swap!

This is a zen poetry writing challenge. You will write one poem (as long as you wish, or as short as a haiku) each day for 7 days. You'll have longer than 7 days to do this so no worries if you miss a day. When partners are assigned you'll then either handwrite or print your poems (along with anything you'd like to say or explain about them) and send them to your partner.

Here are some themes to choose from, though feel free to expand and be creative with your own themes as long as they deal in some way with your own meaning of being "zen":

  • nature
  • feelings that make you feel good like love, contentment, etc
  • meditation
  • the universe
  • how you relax
  • sounds around you
  • what enlightenment means to you
  • the seasons or one particular season
  • the weather
  • share some wisdom you've learned

Note - if you flake on this swap, I will remove you from the group as well as put you on a flaker's list.

I haven't written poetry in years! I am watching for now, while I test my skills at writing. I will sign up closer to the date if I manage to produce anything poetic! :P
