Word cloud - 27/08/10

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...

p.s. Guess the source of the word...

I watched as you spooned
gelid gazpacho from the mixing bowl,
and saw your lips and tongue.
The soup was the colour of a wound,
the spoon hung
lazily from your fingers. You were in total control.
fine words butter no parsnips
