An Aside… psst!

While browsing through the Reader, I came across some group poetry venues. The more the merrier, feel free to check it out.

Here’s a Magnetic Poetry Challenge that appears to happen on Tuesdays at Soup Blog, where there are lots of other writing resources too.

And for those who do not have magnets with words stuck on the fridge, here is a cool site that has “magnets” for you to move around on your screen. Have fun!


Colouring Pic of the Week – Free as a bird, and Waterlilies

This week’s Pick of the bunch is all about freedom. I have joined the picture and frame and added my favourite Twitter Poem over at Twitter Poetry Ignite! Feel free to mix and match too.

It was a week for waterlilies and these are a couple of favourites chosen by readers.

Click to go through the Wildersoul Colouring Book, there are a wide variety of pictures to choose from.

Some people colour them in, others use them as poetry prompts, and others enjoy browsing. Feel free to express yourself creatively.

#TwitterPoetry Ignite! Freedom…

This Freedom poem emerged out of the #twitterpoetry celebration tweets and I decided to frame and illustrate it with a selection from the Wildersoul Colouring Book.

Free from the shackles of your domination
From the bond of your humiliation
The force of your interrogation
Fear and limitation; I am free.

I’ve put the poem into the colouring pic and frame of the week, and had a go with the GIMP software to colour it in.

Tweet your short poem to #twitterpoetry @tarinatrifonoff @wilder_soul anytime. We will be looking for a good twitterpoetry duel on Tuesday. (Your Tuesday or ours, either is fine!) There is a tweet box just to the right, in the sidebar. Go ahead, have a go.

(By the way, I added the robot poem assessor below for a laugh…! Don’t get too serious 🙂 )

(PS. The Pop-Up Poetry sounds like fun!)
