Poetry Challenge #32-Pick A Number . . .


Feeling lucky?

Poetry Challenge #32

Pick a Number . . .

Do you have a favorite number?

Cindy's is 5; mine is 8. You can pick your own number for this challenge or use a deck of cards or a pair of dice to come up with a random one. Same with the letter. Pick your own or draw a letter from a word game. Have fun!

1) Pick a number between 1 and 10.
2) Pick a letter.
3) Write a poem using that many syllables (or that many words) on each line.
4) Use as many words as possible beginning with your letter.
5) Write at least seven lines. Play with those words.

Here’s a poem Cindy made up following these directions entitled 5,L:

Lucy leaves little
lines between luscious
legumes planted in
her least favorite
plot of the garden.
Limited color
of light leaves lay to
the left creating
some leathernecking.
Let them alone and
they will grow lavish.
