Word cloud - 27/06/2010

Post by bodkin » Sun Jun 27, 2010 1:23 pm

This is a word-cloud exercise. Click the link below to see the word-cloud (you will need Java working in your browser).

Study the cloud and try to find groups of words which inspire you to some sort of poem. You do not need to use every word and you can add as many extra words as you need to build the scaffolding around them.

You can also adjust the words' exact forms: run -> ran, train -> trained, horse -> horses etc.

Cloud

There is no end-date for the exercise, I will put another one up in a week or so...

Ian

p.s. You'll never spot the source of the words

Words of warning from her mother
all moved into the substrate of her mind.
It's Saturday night, she's tanked up,
adorned with ornaments and looking fine.
Neon bangles around each wrist
glowing over goldpurple of her skin
faux tanned by the black-light arrays.
Her gravelly voice slurs "givaz another"
but the fine sand of time results in a bell.
She topples outside, gets a lift home
from her father who tells her she's drunk
but thankfully her knickers aren't torn.
to anticipate touching what is unseen seems far more interesting than seeing what the hand can not touch

Tim,
Oh, now that is impressive. Well done with the words. Creative, and very you.
It feels like a challenge given. I am going to have to sit down and give it a try.

Dear Sir,
When I saw how you'd improved
your New Model Substrate
I became emotional. I was moved.
It did have to be seen
to be believed, and I
am so impressed that I will
send no money now,
immediately.

Yours faithfully,
