Prompt #16: Pwoermd

It’s past the mid-way point! Hurrah! Today’s small (but hardly simple) prompt is brought to you by Geof Huth, the force behind one-word poems (called pwoermd).

Read about the concept here.

Then: Invent a word for a body part you do not have and consider the result a poem.



Reminders for Participants: You can post your poem below in the comments, offer a link back to your site where the poem is posted, or comment about the experience of writing the poem (without actually posting the poem). If you’re going to comment on other participant’s poems, please remember that this is not a critique space — comments should be kept thoughtful and supportive. Lastly, remember you don’t have to use the prompt to write your poem — they’re here for your inspiration but they’re certainly not a requirement.

Let the Wild Poeming Being!
