Camp NaNoWriMo Day 21!
Have you seen the magnetic poetry kits where you get a whole bunch of words and you move them around until they make poetry? Usually the result is somewhat silly, but you can end up with some surprisingly thought-provoking stuff, too.
I think magnetic poetry tiles are useful tools to fidget with. Maybe not so much if you know you want to say exactly “through the hazy drops of spring” and the closest magnets you can find create the phrase “though the lazy drop spring…” But if you don’t know what to say, the words are right in front of you. And they create some combinations you never would have thought of.
That’s all for today – have a magnetic haiku!
