A to Z Poetry Challenge Day 11- Secret Smile

Today I have been traveling, so I am just now getting to the A to Z Poetry Challenge Day 11. What fun! Rena Traxel is doing a great job of giving us a variety of challenges for writing poetry. Today she challenged us to write a poem using an awesome online tool. The Poetic Magnetic Poetry Kit is a place where they give you random words to make a poem. You drag the words onto your work area. You click to get additional words, if you need them…but you don’t always get the word you would really like to use. It is addicting. I’m sure there will be a 12 Step Group for it in the near future. I took a screen shot of my poem.

You must go try it!!!

  1. Oh you had some fun with this one, I can tell! There’s even a title. You didn’t answer Natalie’s question. How many hours, huh Penny? Anyway, I had fun reading this one. I love this poem.

    • Do you have the snipping tool on your computer? I use it constantly. It will take a picture of anything on your screen…you just drag a rectangle around it. I have a windows computer and haven’t used a Mac in a while…but whichever you have, there’s a way to do it. It’s very handy.

    • What?!? Confession??? OK…I went about this analytically! I drug words into columns on the magnetic board—rhyming vowels, articles, vowels, adjectives, nouns etc. Then I built. I discovered I would have to do it this way because…you know me and the rhyming thing…I wanted somewhat of a rhyme. So with that method, it actually only took about an hour! Normally, I would get my idea and then find my words. This time…obviously the words had to come and then an idea sprung from that. But…I could spend many, many hours in search of perfection 🙂

  3. Penny, you are funny. I howled at the 12 Step Group! Lovely poem. Makes me think of when I was a kid and tried eating dirt followed by playing in the mud. I was embracing life (my parents weren’t impressed).
