I’ve been having fun so far this month trying different poem springboards. Oppositify, the word association grid, N+7…Today’s sticky note poem came from a thought while I was fixing my lunch one day. I grouped three random things that I had out on the kitchen counter and took a photo. Then I used only words (or forms of words) found on those objects’ packaging to write a found haiku.
Thanks for reading, and happy National Poetry Month! And if you ended up here by chance, fantastic! Here are a few links you might find helpful.

Love seeing your process! An iced lemon tree for me, please!
Love seeing your that you used what you had on hand, including the paper towels, to create something so perfectly perfect. Inspiration is everywhere!

Trees iced in lemons sounds delicious. Ice and lemons go together so fine! Thanks for sharing your word lists on the paper towels. It’s good to see your thinking!
