Poetry topic idea: illusion

Today’s poetry topic idea is illusion.  Some ways this idea could be used in poetry include poems about:

  • Magic tricks that involve illusions.

  • A person acting one way, but really being or feeling another (ex. They seemed happy, but it was an illusion).

  • Some sort of misdirection (ex. The safe was empty, and the money was in a box marked ‘junk’).

  • Some sort of misconception (ex. A person was under an illusion about a situation).
