Hello. I am missing our usual routine on Wordgathering and missing the chat with the usual people. May is coming with a return to the regular schedule!
Instructions: Choose a phone number — can be made up. Write out the full number (including any area codes) as a series of digits without dashes or parentheses. Decide what your numbers will correspond to — words, sentences or pages. If your first number is two (2), you could grab the second word on a page, the second sentence on a page, or the second page in the book. Do this for each digit. You can cycle through the phone number series multiple times to generate enough text for your poem.
Mine: Living on a Dragon.
Other dialed in poems:
Misky: It Melted to Wax
Barbara C: Before the Battle
Richard Walker: setting
Doug Luman: Audubon Field Report: Chordeiles Minor
Lori Brack: parable
Short and sweet. Enjoy and I’ll see you tomorrow for a prompt I found difficult to carry out, but love the result.
