Prompt #63 Bricks are made like this!

Bricks are made like this!

have dictionary will dance

We Write Poems:  
Alright, that’s a clue, we’re going elemental this week. Elizabeth Crawford’s suggestion for our prompt is to use the dictionary (or thesaurus), find some words new to your vocabulary and use them in creating the poem you write this week! It’s sort of like a “wordle” except you choose the words AND they’ve gotta be first-time-new words for you. How you select which words, how many, and the poem that will wear them to the dance – those parts of course are all up to you. Maybe it will be fates fickle finger, words that rhyme (though the poem itself needn’t be that way), words that entice you by their meaning, or maybe even something on a theme. Like rivers begin, many fingers may converge. Enjoy!

Thanks again to Elizabeth. Read her original prompt (and poem) on her blog.

Come back next Wednesday when you see,It’s Post Your Poems Day!” and leave a link to the poem on your blog. If you don’t have a blog, then please, post your poem in the comment itself.    ***    You are invited to respond to the prompt given here, but if you have something else you’re just itching to share, please feel welcome in doing that. Our first desire here is to encourage you to write and learn and share.    ***    When leaving comments to other’s poems, please be appreciative and encouraging. We are not a poem “critique” site (unless someone specifically asks for that). Be kind with each other (and yourself!).    ***    Please consider including a link with your blog poem back to the prompt response here at We Write Poems so that others may see and join our community. More participants do make better soup!
