scattered words

10.31.2015


picture one blood dress,
heavy lashes,
street corner,
and all you did?
drive away.
sometimes it's hard to come up with your own words - there are far too many to choose from. so... this is magnetic poetry (i'm far too frugal to buy an actual set, so i use this website.) it's a cure for writer's block that is almost too simple to be ingenious. actually, it's surprisingly therapeutic to rearrange words on a computer screen. perhaps this will be a new thing here on my blog. and maybe you'd like to give it a try? tell me how you find it! :)

  1. goodness, Arushee. this website is waYYYYY too amazing for me. squeeeb. but it is good. your piece is ever so lovely.

    i did:
    breathe
    lonely winter rivers
    daffodil night
    deep beneath wavering mountains

    (or something along those lines -- i submitted it before i remembered to write it here. whoops!)

  5. Your poem is so beautiful; I loved every piece of it. Here's mine:

    lively child
    always wild
    haunting my voice
    the ghost
    scared
    me

  6. Wow, what a good idea. I never thought of trying magnetic poetry online. It looks like a great way to get feelings out, when as you say, you can't find your own words. I shall be looking forward to seeing more of your poems. :)

    (I had a spare moment, so I made my own magnetic poem.)
    feel harmony
    nature's murmur
    deep water
    wander
