Are you about to celebrate a special anniversary with that special someone? If so, don’t forget that a proper gift is required to make any anniversary celebration just right. Don’t worry, though, because the perfect anniversary gift might be much easier than you think to come up with. Try writing some great anniversary poems for the one you love.
As an author and a professor of creative writing, it of course comes naturally to think about ways to incorporate writing into any gift situation. I love thinking of new ways to use words to express feelings or thoughts to people I love. One year I wrote each of my five children a unique children’s story for their birthdays, and my wife is never surprised by some special writing pieces on her birthday or other occasions. I believe that writing is powerful, and that’s why I think all people would benefit by writing great anniversary poems for the ones they love this year.
The idea of writing anything let alone poetry seems like too much for many people, but perhaps that is simply because they were never trained to write well. Take my advice: I have been watching non-writers turn into great writers each semester for nearly thirty years. Students frequently enter my poetry classes with a deep belief that they are not poets. Three months later they leave with an impressive portfolio and are convinced that anything is possible. Learning to write anniversary poems can be much the same process.
If writing great anniversary poems for the one you love sounds like a great idea, then start today. Begin by getting in touch with someone who can help you write great poetry. Hire a writing consultant to help you for an hour or two or attend a writing seminar. If going to class isn’t your style, then head to your local library and check out some books on writing anniversary poems. You might be surprised at how much there is to learn.
Giving anniversary poems is one of the most unique and romantic ways to celebrate with the one you love. So make a commitment today to begin learning to write special anniversary poems and you’ll be able to surprise and bless your special someone when your next anniversary rolls around. And don’t worry too much about being perfect, just write your thoughts and feelings in poetry form and you’ll have anniversary poems in no time.
