I am facilitating a poetry group at the Highgate Society on the first Monday of the month (6.30-8.30pm fact fans). It’s basically an open mic. But the group also decided to set a poetry challenge at each meeting. And these will make up my latest theme on the DAO blog.
The first challenge was called 5 random words. We took 5 random words from the poets. They were; cornucopia, phantasmagoria, embarrassment, kite and brick. The challenge was, and remains for readers of my DAO blog, to construct a poem out of the 5 words.
Some great stuff came back but I wasn’t enamoured with the first challenge so just left it at this:
Give great words
Now with my embarrassment
At a height
I’ll go fly a kite.
Its nonsense of course and I know you the reader can do better. But, you just wait until Challenge 2. In the meantime, take the challenge, get involved.
