'if you can copy ,you can create'- said Leonardo da Vinci (1452-1519)*

 so why not today ...attempt a copy..or style of a poet or painter.. and in so doing....

                                                                         you will create

something unique..

        in your style ....

               and thus will have  'added value' as I have done here http://poiema2.blogspot.com

AND 

think of it as a  tribute and is cheaper than any course online or otherwise

 

* a link to one of my favurities of Leanardo https://www.discoveringdavinci.com/la-scapigliata

and a favourite imagist of American Cinquain fame -Adelaide Crapsey https://www.poetryfoundation.org/poems/46253/november-night who inspired my interest in this truly American originated  form
