Today’s dVerse prompt asked us to take three words that either describe us or mean a lot and three words that describe people or things we’re grateful to have in our lives. We were then tasked to create a short poem no longer than 12 lines incorporating the six words.
Here is what I came up with:
A silly girl with wooly hair loves words
She walks in the rain holding a purple bumbershoot
Dreaming of a tantalizing love
Her ideal suitor is creative
Adores wild colors
Gentle music from the Caribbean
Has a strong relationship with the omniscient one
The storm is over, but she still twirls the umbrella
While a rainbow curves just above her
Covering her in hope and a kaleidoscope of realities
First Word Set
