Poetry topic idea: lost

Today’s poetry topic idea is lost.  Lost is an interesting idea, because it has a wide range of scopes.  Some ideas for lost include:

  • A child lost in a store
  • A person lost while driving
  • A person lost in a vast place, like the ocean
  • A person feeling lost
  • Something (either tangible or intangible) being lost

Here’s an example of a tanka written using the idea lost:

Alright, that word there,
it starts with what looks like s,
maybe that means south?

  Standing by the tall road sign,
  missing the translation book.
