Okay. Here's the thing: I'm holding. A list! What did you think? Ms. X gave me this very excellent word list for all of us to write from. She wants you to know that she's not all hung up with rules and stuff. (I told you we were friends!) For example, if the word "bitter" is on the list, you don't have to use it exactly as it appears. You could use "bitterest" or "bitterroot" or "bitters" or any variation that works best in your poem. The aim here is to inspire; the list should be a springboard, not a straightjacket! Use all the words if you want to, or use just one. Use five. Whatever blows your skirt up!
When you're done writing your poem, a NEW poem, using one or many of the words on the following list, just link up and let us know that, wow, did you ever get listed! I look forward to reading everyone's creations!
Now then, here is some music to get listed by, and....our list!
