May the Fourth Be With You

Star WarsLast Friday, we discussed how the manipulation of the space in a poem can affect the work and add meaning. If you’re interested in joining that discussion, check it out here.

Personally that is a challenge for me. My default poetry look is pretty basic. So I thought, what better way to try this out than to make it a prompt? Also, it’s May the 4th and I’m a bit of a nerd, so….

Today’s wordle is brought to you by the beginning lines of the Star Wars script as shown on IMSDB.com. Use at least five words from it to create your poem. (You can use as many as you want.) Try to change up the look of your poem to impact meaning.

Make sure share it in the comments so we can all bask in your words.

Check out what each is doing and share! Let’s build this community. All links will be added to this year’s digest.

  1. Doing something different with space is fun. I did one once that used sentences all over the place and yet made perfect sense.
    The first simple one was https://rantingcrow.wordpress.com/2014/04/08/chaos/
    a second I went a little further using the space given.https://rantingcrow.wordpress.com/2014/09/30/scattered/

    The idea was o try something new and different not to manipulate the space but the way you read.. Now those are not the wordles obviously. Maybe I will create one tomorrow.
