Poetry Challenge #45

Pure Magic

Magic! Do you believe in magic? I do. How else do you explain the unexplainable?

#1 Think a moment about Magic!
#2 Jot down words & images that comes to mind related to Magic!
#3 Use words from your Magic List to create a Pyramid Poem.

What’s a Pyramid Poem?

A Pyramid Poem is a type of concrete poem. It starts with one word on the top line. The second line has two words, three words on the third line, four words on the fourth line, and so on. The lines are centered above each other so they create a pyramid shape on the paper. Pyramid Poems do not have to rhyme (but they can), nor do the number of syllables matter.

To create the shape, a pyramid poem must have at least 3 lines . . ..

If you are up for a challenge, try using the words “Pure Magic” as the second line of your Pyramid Poem! Abracadabra!

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
