Six Words Poetry

I'm borrowing this idea from some of the women on the International Center for Women Playwrights listserv. It was lots of fun over there, so I thought it would be fun to continue it here.

The idea is that you send me 6 words that typify your current mood, or springtime, or your mood about springtime. Or just 6 words you like. Once I receive enough of them, I will put the groups of words together to form poems. It's an exercise in putting together random thoughts in order to make something meaningful.

Of course, this requires a lot of participation! So post your 6 words in comments, then send your friends over to do the same! If we get enough participation, I'll post the poems next Friday.

I'll start things off:

Winter whimpers at spring's cheerful promise


Send as many as you like, and remember to tell your friends!

Breezes soft,
nights cool,
dreams aloft.

And there is, of course, more than a trace of allegory in that line ;)
