    lol...


    A small group of poets meets in our Gold Country library the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month to discuss, read, and write poetry. One of our challenges is a "Word Can" poem... a word is pulled out of the can by each participant and we have a few minutes to come up with a poem/(or not) that we share with each other when all are done. Our most recent challenge included the words:

    matter/fuselage/remote/cottage/perspire

    There were some wonderful creations by our small group - mine more mundane but I will share:

    A Sight Rhyme

    Would fuselage rhyme with cottage
    in a perfect world I pondered
    I check my poetry app with eagerness,
    no need to perspire
    But does it really matter
    with all the time in the world
    when one lives simply in the comforts
    of a remote home

    Your challenge is to write a poem with these same 5-words (above).

    I hope to return with a new list of words from our Word Can from our next meeting as well as my new impromptu attempt

    Word Can poem

    One of my recent Word Can challenge attempts:
    (mince/township/quirky/destiny/jam)

    "The Township Faire's Mince Jam Confiddle"

    'twas the destiny of our township faire
    as quirky as the town's folke are around hyar
    to have a five way tie in the mince jam category
    turned into one hullabaloo
    - I tell you, yes sirree...
    To break the tie the five finalist got thunkin'
    to shoot at the township faire's prize winnin' pumpkin
    The closest to the mark smack dab in the middle
    would solve this mince jam confiddle
    So who'd a thunk when the first up to shoot
    shot a skunk and we all had to skid-diddle


    ... Challenge continues
