Hi all. It’s been a couple weeks. Miss me? I missed writing. I mean I HAVE been journaling periodically (like 12 out of 31 days last month), but it’s not the same as writing for others.
I’m here to let you know that I <3 word pools! I've been using the awe-manac to inspire journaling and one of the aha-phrodisiacs is word pools. It's basically a jumble of words you can use to write a story, poem or whatever you want. I like to challenge myself by adhering to their listed order.
Today's word pool (inspired by Langston Hughes): I wonder, laughter, the sun, move, dream variations, heart melodies, that, may, wrap them in a blue cloud-cloth, wander, do, bring.
Sometimes I wonder how laughter inspires the sun. Is it moved? Do our silly dream variations strum its heart melodies? I thought that it may like the giggles. That it'd wrap them in a blue cloud-cloth and wander about, hugging them like a lovey. I hope the sun loves laughter as I do. Especially with all the warmth that it brings, they seem like a perfect match.
So, what'dya think? Creative use of a bunch of words can be fun. Try it out for yourself in the comments below. :D
