Poetry Wednesdays

Randomly rip a sheet out of an old magazine (a text page, not an image page) cut it into 20 strips lengthwise and then gather the strips together and cut across thirty times. Put the pieces in a cup. Pull out 15 pieces and lay them in front of you so the text is upright. With a marker quickly circle a word on each piece of paper without giving much thought to their choice.

When you are done write the words on a work sheet (or you can glue or tape them on the page if you like). Write a poem using the words. If a topic doesn’t immediately come to you while you are looking at the words use the topic of “lovebirds”.

If you haven’t attached the pieces to your work sheet then save the pieces and use them again another day.
