NaPoWriMo : Day 3 (Random Words)


Poetry Prompt: Today, I’d like to challenge you to make a “Personal Universal Deck,” and then to write a poem using it. Basically, you will need 50 index cards or small pieces of paper, and on them, you will write 100 words (one on the front and one on the back of each card/paper) using the rules found here.

All in the Cards

One in fifty
I wrote all the words I thought were nifty
Words that resonate
That activate
My senses
Words that define
That I believe are mine
But not exclusive
Aromas that fling me fast
To remind me of people long, long past
Words that make me feel
Sometime seem unreal
Yet there they are
Words that trigger vision
That needed no revision
That were perfect
Words that stick in my ear
My favorite song that brings a tear
Every time
Words that make me taste
Without waste
The salt and sweet
I shuffled and cut
Placed them in front as the rain began to pour
Drew the first card
Then added one more

I will be posting my poems here: I hope you will drop by!

I am an author, composer, and an artist. I published my first book of poetry: Lines by Leon – Poems, Prose, and Pictures in January 2020 and a book of original classical guitar compositions. My latest book is a short story compilation of science fiction/post-apocalyptic tales called, The Knot at the End of the Rope and Other Short Stories.
