Poem Sketch

A poem sketch is an exercise using a word group and creating a poem with those words. (from the book Writing Poetry from the Inside Out by Sanford Lyne, which is very good!)

Here is my latest:
word list: Words - straw - spin - gold

Pen and paper is my loom
where words
spin from mind to hand
held with tension to weave
my words of straw into
shimmering gold.
