Sensory Poetry
By Brenda B. Covert
  

1     You know the five senses. You need them to see, hear, smell, taste, and feel. Did you know that you can turn them into poetry? It is true! We call it sensory poetry.
 
2     A sensory poem may describe an object. It may describe a place. It may describe an idea. It will tell the reader about the sights and sounds. It will share the smells and tastes. The poem will talk about touch.
 
3     This kind of poem does not have to rhyme. The poet gets to choose! It does not need to follow a pattern. Young poets often like to use patterns. That may be a good idea for the first time.
