Here they all are! I'm going to post them on social media over the next several weeks.

It was so much fun that I'm going to keep going and write a haiku each day. :)


For some of the Free Writing Days or even when there was a prompt, sometimes I used this random word generator to get some ideas.

I used the gogobox app to make the collages on a blank canvas and with royalty-free images in the "Content Creation & Classification" feature of the app.


Give it a try! We are good at this!


Here is a tessellation of all the poems! Below this, you can see a bigger version of each poem and some even more variations (with different photos). It changes the spirit or the meaning of the poem. :)

Bonus fun timely photo of Mona Lisa and 2 versions for nostalgia because I liked how it looked with both photos.



Day 10:


Day 10: Free Writing Day / Slime was a late entry I made with a random word generator -- with slime. Then I thought about slimy skin. And the I Googled some stuff with slimy skin. I learned that amphibians have slimy (wet) skin because they go in the water and reptiles do not -- which makes sense. Never thought about it though. :)


Day 11:

Day 12: Mind Palace / Library / Tavern is a poem about Dorothy Parker, one of the most famous writers of the 20th century.

For one of the prompts there was love / anti-love, so I wrote 2 -- inspired by the animal knigdom.




Day 22:



Day 23:



Day 24:




Day 25:




Day 26:


One of the prompts was: Change. I decided to write about change in the physical form like coins rather than the concept. Haha. :)



Day 27:



The prompts were: Massive and Unseen. I chose a few different photos for the "Unseen" poem. I like how you can see that the meaning or spirit of the poem changes with the different photo. Some are spooky and some are fun. :)










The 2 black and white photos are actually from the same larger photo. I cropped the photo in different ways and you can see that even though they came from the same image that they are very different photos.




Day 28:


One of the prompts was a double prompt: Look Back / Don't Look Back. I decided to write it both ways. The other prompt was: Turning.


For Look Back, I chose a few different photos again. When I searched, "Look Back," this photo with the leopard showed up, it wasn't what I was thinking about, but the leopard looked cool, so I used it. Even with the 3 different road pictures, you can see how the poem changes with the different images. :)








Don't Look Back:















Look Back:





Day 29:


Prompts: Beam (Free Writing Day, Random Word Generator) and Total [Blank] -- Total Madness


Day 30:
