Sometimes I get bored with myself, so...I've been playing around with the magnetic poetry kits:

This is ONE of the choices. Go take a peek and poke around in the there. I've done two and posted them in Open...I'm interested to see what you guys can come up with! You are all so inventive!

Man that's cool!

You know you're Canadian when if something's broken, the first thing you ask is if it can be fixed with WD-40 or Duct Tape

k,
Thanks for posting this.  I did this often a couple of years ago (tho not from this site).  Good excercise I think.  Mentioned it to someone and they said "huh?".  Hadn't heard of it.  Hope they see this.
Maybe I'll have to go back to that ploy to get out of this ugly funk I'm in.  On the verge of posting old stuff just to post but that gets nothin out of my head.  I have a constipated brain these days.  Ugh!

look for it soon:

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

I got one of these for xmas a few years ago.

It's fun to write dark poetry with them.

I think online magnetic poetry is great.  In the past, I've used it to help me out of writer's block.  For me, the key is not to depend solely on the words that are on the board.  Use what you can find for the first line or two and then let the poem take off.  At least, that is how it has worked for me.  I started my poem "fade to gray" using a magnetic board.  The first two lines were pretty much from the board and the rest of the poem is isolated words from the board mixed with my own inspirational additives.  Be flexible!  It's a great exercise.

fade to gray

scattered fragments of broken promises
tempered by a dying fire
from the ashes
she builds her memories
some far from the moment
some far from the truth

shattered  images 'neath colorless rainbows
paled by a careless desire
over her shoulder
she glares at  the pieces
some shadowed in black
some sparkling in white

frozen moments in burning teardrops
snared by a painful briar
it's such a small pin prick
to bleed for a lifetime
so far from that moment
so far from her youth
