Day 7: “I Feel Powerless.”

Day 7:

Free form is fine, but you are also getting a haiku.

For your Sunday prompt, let’s get a little creative.

Find a Sunday paper, or any newspaper (even one of those free dailies will work).

Open the paper to a full spread – one with lots of articles and words, not a bunch of photos. Get yourself a highlighter or colored pen.
Close your eyes for a moment, take a good deep breath (as deep as you can).

Exhale, and begin to lightly scan the paper, underlining random words from all over the page. What you’re doing is building a found-word poem, or a short prose piece, by taking single words from various sentences and joining them together.

Let the available words dictate what is written, but don’t feel stuck to one article or column. You can ramble all over. Try it a few times: you’ll be surprised what you find.
