At Students Publish Here! we have enjoyed using random word lists to create poems. Here are some poems that have been produced using such lists:
I invite readers to submit original poems using the following list of words:
caring for none
a painful splinter
Presence of the place
chorus of wind chimes
smooth speckled stones
dryer than death
Poems should be between 12 and 30 lines. Words may be used in any order. Poets are not required to use all the words.
The results will be published at Students Publish Here! (Two submissions have already arrived, as of May 28.)
Deadline: June 30
I look forward to reading your work!
