June’s Open Write – Word Association Poems

Hydrangea

Allison Berryhill of Iowa is our host today at ethicalela.com for the June Open Write. She is challenging us to write word association poems by letting our eyes land on something in the room, then associating that word with another word, and another and another and then going back and adding words on each line to create a poem.

Hydrangea Hopeful

My words were:
hydrangea
island
friend
childhood
poetry
bicycles
village
pier

a hydrangea hopeful
from her island garden
my friend
from childhood who also
loves poetry~
we rode bicycles
to the village
crabbed off the pier
