Fünf Elfchen de/en

read 15. Februar 2018 Berlin Spoken Word, theme: off topic

I took part in a writing workshop in December cause a friend dragged me there. It was with the one and only Lahya Aukongo. She hosts the One World Poetry Night, the best curated poetry show in Berlin, you should check it out. Every second saterday, you find it on facebook. So, one thing we did was the classical „Elfchen“ exercise. you write a poem with five lines: 1. one word adjective/adverb 2. two words a noun with the article 3. three words as a describtion of the noun 4. four words starting with „I“ (if you want to cheat you can also start it with „you“) 5. one final word. its such an inspirational exercise, you just sit there and produce 20 in one minute. I‘ll read five out to you in german and translate them at the same time.
