I give you words, you give me poetry. Countdown-style.

It goes like this.

In my bag I carry three envelopes. Inside each envelope are little squares of paper. On each square of paper is a word.

One from the top, two from the middle and one from the bottom please, Carol*

Just as the contestants on Countdown choose different sized numbers and use them to get as near to the target as possible, you may choose how many words you would like from envelopes 1, 2 and 3. You may request a maximum of six words. Not all words need to be used.

Leave me a comment with your request and I will give you the words. Once your words have been issued, you have 24 hours to post the resulting poem.

Got it? Great. GO!


These people want your poems

*Or ‘Rachel‘, for you modern types
