Prompt #82 word relationship pairs

November 24, 2011

word relationship pairs

We Write Poems:
This being Thanksgiving “turkey” week for many of us, and being busy with all that ingesting and digesting, we’d like to offer a simple prompt in the midst of all that chaotic delight.

Think of this as a micro-wordle with a difference.  We invite you to look at the relationship of words in pairs (yes, free association allowed).  Use this list of six words, select pairs (three sets), then look for relationships within each of those pairs, maybe expressed as “poemlets” like we did recently. If you’ve the energy, do it a second time using different pairings. Part of writing poems is observing and/or creating relationships, so that’s what we’re inviting you to examine. The poemlets needn’t all relate together in the whole, unless you want to add that challenge too.  Relax, take a breath, notice the relationships around yourself, and here in these words.

The words are:   gathering   oak   color   membrane   voice   limb

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, or if you’re not celebrating that day, please just have a delightful day for yourself and your family.

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!
