I got a little inspiration for this poetry prompt from Google Poetics, a site that collects found poetry using only Google’s autocompletes.
For this prompt do the following:
- Take one word.
- Find five of its synonyms.
- Pick one verb to use with your 6 words.
- Make a poem with the first Google search result each combo creates.
I chose the word creativity, and the verb is. After searching creativity is, individuality is, innovation is, inventiveness is, originality is and imagination is (my five synonyms), I created the poem below.
Creativity is intelligence having fun.
Individuality is important.
Innovation is defined as…
Is inventiveness a word?
Originality is dead.
Imagination is the only escape.
And since the possibilities are endless, with a little creative line work and punctuation I came up with another poem using the same words.
Originality is dead imagination.
Is the only escape creativity?
Is intelligence having fun?
Important innovation is defined as is.
