From coffee to dinner

Updated: Apr 9

(from the NaPoWriMo prompt: Today’s prompt (optional, as always) asks you to make use of our resource for the day. First, make a list of ten words. You can generate this list however you’d like – pull a book  off the shelf and find ten words you like, name ten things you can see from where you’re sitting, etc. Now, for each word, use Rhymezone to identify two to four similar-sounding or rhyming words. For example, if my word is “salt,” my similar words might be “belt,” “silt,” “sailed,” and “sell-out.” Once you’ve assembled your complete list, work on writing a poem using your new “word bank.” You don’t have to use every word, of course, but try to play as much with sound as possible, repeating  sounds and echoing back to others using your rhyming and similar words.)


From coffee to dinner

two-thirds of each day

words like birds

bouncing off boards


empty-

choice-

idle-

strong-

in other-


words like birds

wing in and out

like sips from my bottle to my beard

words, words, words


poems like jeroboams

for a lottery winner’s dinner.


And for those of you who are interested, here is the word bank I created (My words are on the left):
