"With any one of our sense, we can uncover a wealth of inspiration. I smell the blooming jasmine and let it spark a memory of my first visit to Los Angeles, and then a poem begins to form...I like to move through each one of my senses to discover what they expose." - Jacqueline Suskin, Every Day is a Poem.The focus of chapter five in Every Day is a Poem by Jacqueline Suskin is on connecting with your senses and bringing that connection in to your writing. The suggestion is to focus on one sense only for the next few days of writing - seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and touching - and incorporate that experience into a poem or piece of writing.

Again, this challenge is simply about pushing myself in new directions as a writer, to help me continue to hone my skills and grow in my craft. I am not working on writing great poetry at this point, just trying to work my way through the exercises.
