Today’s poetry topic idea is synchronization. When things are synchronized, they match in some way. An example might be clocks that are synchronized – they all show the same time when they are compared to each other, and they all move at the same rate.
Synchronization can be used in poetry in a number of ways. For example, a poet could write about the process of synchronizing many things, such as many clocks. A poet could also write about synchronization in something less mechanical, for example, like in dancing.
A poet could also write about things being out of synchronization. An example could be a marching band, where some of the marchers are out of step. A poem could examine the implications of being out of synchronization in this example, as well as in others.
A poet could also write about synchronization, as a form of conformity. They could examine this as either a negative thing or a positive thing.
An additional way that a poet could write about synchronization, would be to have the poetry form they use reflect it. For example, a poet could have a poetry form with three columns, with each column having one stanza in each row. As the rows progressed, the stanzas could take on different forms, but in a way that they matched, within the rows.
