Writing 101, Poetry : Beloved

Is there a math equation?

Do I need to solve X to find the Beloved for me?

I still don’t know.

Is there a book for dummies cause I have no clue.

How do I begin to find that one beloved? or are there two, wink:)

Days goes to weeks, weeks to month, and month to years

Is there a beloved out there for me?

To have a beloved or not to be beloved

Maybe this world hasn’t one for me.

Something about the very word “beloved” causes a frisson in us. Out of the people that matter to you, who matters the most? Whom do you love, or whom have you loved more than anyone else? What does the word “beloved” summon up in your imagination? What songs, poems, stories, movies spring to mind? Who is your beloved?

Today, write a poem celebrating your beloved. It does not have to be a specific person — you could address an imaginary beloved from the future who’s waiting for you. You could take on the persona of a well-known mythological or historic character and address her or his beloved in your poem. You could create a new type of lover and beloved.
