PoMoSco Day 4

04 Apr

This turned out to be more darned fun. So much so, that I plan to try it when my mind goes walkabout and I want it to focus on writing. Here are the directions:

Come up with an unlikely word combination. You can make up your own, choose words at random from a source text, or use a generator. Examples: Foolish Ninja, Calamitous Rock, Hurry Pork, Jugular Magnet

Visit Google and do a search on your combination (no quotes around the terms). Google will display a list of pages, and short descriptions for each site. Compose a poem using only the page titles and short descriptions. You can use multiple pages of search results.

My words were: beetle string and the poem: Fly a Beetle on a String


Kathy Douglas: Acceptable Crumpets

Zann Carter: Something to a Distant Point Like That Was Possible

Richard Walker: Fictional Nominee

Pat Brisson: Is There Room on the Broom for a Frog Like Me

Until tomorrow!

    Fun to ‘string’ those memories together…
    Though like lightning beetle bugs I’d hope in the end – they were all set free…

      I suspect they were, Jules.

    Oh, what delightfully ingenious fun this was! Today’s was not doable for me, so I’m backtracking. 😉 I loved this. Heading over to read yours from this day, now. 🙂

    (And thanks again for letting me tag along.)
