Poetry Starter - Writing Prompt #4

Here's a quick poetry starter exercise for you.
Using a one-word start, create a list of connected words -- words you associate with the start word. 
Now add a few additional words to turn your list into a poem.
Don’t deliberate ... try to work quickly and intuitively.

Jess started with the word – Wood, added 22 more words to her list, and then wrote this poem.

  In the wood,
  Bare tree branches
  Are sprouting catkins.
  A heron flies
  Suddenly past ash,
  Whilst a wagtail
  Hops between
  Primroses and anemones.
  Below green buds
  Bluebells line a pathway
  Which leads to a
  Waterfall, with
  Tumbling water,
  Roaring over stones
  In white bursts of surf,
  With Kingfisher above
  Baring bright colours
  Flashing past.


  1. Thanks for your post. I’ve been thinking about writing a very comparable post over the last couple of weeks, I’ll probably keep it short and sweet and link to this instead if thats cool. Thanks.

  2. Mellowed by this profound knowledge of letting go, middle-aged love is less arrogant,more abject and more philosophical. Unlike in the first flush of youth when love is at the very first sight and its demise is at the very first slight, love, if it at all happens at this age, is rather with a philosophical construct, than with a person.
