wordle poem for Big Tent Poetry
This week’s prompt at Big Tent Poetry was a wordle that included the words resent, praise, hungry, comfort, dark, dangerous, milk, part, cough, dull and stars. I wrote the words in my journal and took a few stabs at it. Here are two of them (I don’t know why “persistence” made it into both pieces; it’s an example of being stuck in a rut! and I don’t know why the narrator likes the stars in one of them and not in the other):
REMOVED FOR EDITING/SUBMISSION.
I am delighted this week, not by the poems as their own good little children, but by the pieces in each one that I wouldn’t have discovered were it not for the writing exercise. Yay to writing from prompts! Sorry, haters, but it works! Watch for lines from these starter poems coming to an actual poem near you!
