Playing with words

Valmiki writing the Ramayana

Valmiki's Ramayana

I like to write poetry – even bits of poetry – for fun and to stretch my creative brain whenever it starts to feel like it’s encased in cobwebs.  One of the ways I do this is by participating in the daily news/poetry challenge offered at 3by3by3.

The challenge is simple enough:

Pick 3 stories from Google News. Using only words that occur in the first 3 paragraphs of each story, make a poem with 3 stanzas, 3 lines each, no more than 60 characters per line. The 3-word title should use a word from each story.

If you’re creative brain needs a reset, I encourage you to try it. Here’s a couple of my offerings.
