Get inspired by a song. Music and poetry are so related, let’s see if you can write something inspired by music.
Listen to a song, it must be something that elicits strong emotion from you. Maybe your favorite song that feels you with happiness–or a song that you love to hate. Listen to it a couple times with your eyes closed, really enmesh yourself in the emotion.
Then let your pen fly across the page. (or hands-keyboard, you get it. ) Either write it in your blog or in the comments section here. Be sure to let us know what the song is and how it makes you feel.
Since I’m horribly nerdy, and I try to see where people are coming from, I’ll probably listen to the songs while I read your work. (But that’s just me.)
Don’t forget to link it back here to this post.

Hi Gary! I wrote the post, so I thought I would answer you. A backlink or a pingback is where one blog links to another’s blog post. So, you would write your poem, mention The Reverie and then insert the link for this post into yours.
Here’s a link for WordPress’s explanation on how to do it with their sites. https://en.support.wordpress.com/links/. I don’t know what you blog on, but I think the explanation would be similar.
If you don’t want to do that, you can post the link to your post in this comment section as well.
I hope this helps!
