Poetry topic idea: empty

Today’s poetry idea is empty.  Empty can have different uses for poetry.  There is a literal use of the word and a non-literal use.  Some things poets can write about are:

  • A person feeling empty
  • A person wanting to find something, but finding the container of it is empty
  • The act of emptying something
  • Using the sound of the word empty, and focusing on the letters MT, which sound like the sound, in a poem
  • A person wanting something to be empty
