This week I’m asking you to write a poem, any poem, in any form, long, short, with or without bells on it. The only thing I’m insisting on is that you start each line with the same letter.
I wrote one like this on Monday: Gulls and it was a fun sort of exercise.
If you’d like a first word prompt to get things rolling, try:
cat, city, crocodile, crocus, caravan, circus.
And/or incorporate one of these adjectives:
capricious, captivating, calm, calamitous, curious.
Need a verb?
career, canter, climb, contort, clamber, circle.
You probably guessed, I have chosen the letter C. Choose a different one of you prefer, I’m easy. Here is my C poem.
Carefully padding, pace quickening after
Cowering mouse darts
Crazily through tree tangle to
Clinging to the twitching hot-blooded fur.
Cringing mouse freezes, biding time,
Calling up reserves of
Courage and speed.
Claws retract, mouse scuttles,
Cogs turn too quickly, paw swipes.
Cracking tiny bones.
Remember, you have a whole week to create your single letter poem. And don’t forget the link to your blog if you post it there. Cheers!
