April 10, 2016: Poetry Writing Prompt – Jill Cournoyer

Find an old diary, journal, letter, notes, etc. that you wrote. Close your eyes, open it up, and put your finger on a page. Use only the words in that paragraph (or page/section if small) to create a poem. You may repeat the words and use different forms (i.e., long, longing, longest) of them. The poem should try to change the original tone or meaning of the words in the found passage to create a new tone or meaning.
