Welcome to the Weekend Mini Challenge with Kim from writinginnorthnorfolk.com!
One of my favourite poems by Philip Larkin is ‘The Building’, which I cannot reproduce here due to copyright restrictions. However, I can provide a link to the poem HERE
as well as a link to a YouTube recording of Larkin reading his poem:
What I like about it is the way in which the poem conveys the physical appearance and atmosphere of a hospital without once using the term ‘hospital’, through the use of certain words and connotations.
Today’s challenge is to write about a building. It could be a specific building with a name that we would all know without directly naming it. It could be a church, a school or a building in which you have lived. It could be a department store, a government building or a concert hall. It is up to the reader to work out what the building is. Your poem does not have to consist of nine stanzas like Larkin’s and can be in any form you choose, but it should be a new poem.
Link up your new poem via Mr. Linky, visit other Toads, and leave some friendly graffiti on their buildings! It'll be fun trying to work out what those buildings are. Happy building!
