Two Sides of the Coin
Hi, everyone. The weeks go so fast. It is time for another Mary's Mixed Bag here in the Garden. I thought of a challenge I hope everyone will enjoy trying. This week I would like you to write a poem describing something or a situation from two different perspectives or points of view. Perhaps in alternating verses, or whatever works for you.
Sometimes two witnesses of an auto accident see different things and recount the accident differently, and each is sure he/she is right.
A conflict between a mother and an adolescent daughter would have two different perspectives. If they wrote or spoke about it, they would tell different tales.
A friendship between two people ends. Undoubtedly they view the ending differently. What would each say?
There are often different points of views within one person. (I argue with myself sometime, don't you?) Express them in poetry form. Perhaps as a dialogue, or perhaps not.
Anyway, I think you get the idea. I look forward to reading your new poem on two sides of the coin! And, if you link your poem, please visit poems of others as well. We all like visits. That's part of the fun!
