Poetry Challenge #47

Trending Poetry

There are many excellent sites for Words of the Day. Some of them include trending words as well—words that are the most looked up at that moment in time. For this poem, you need to collect five words and see what you can do with them.

One of my favorite sites for words for all ages is Merriam Webster’s Word Central. Look at the Buzzwords Archive and grab the first five words. If you need definitions, click on the word. Then write a poem/story/something using those words.

In case you can’t look them up, today’s words are:

wombat, tense, temblor, jockey, coincide

Feel free to use these words or look them up any day and use what you find!

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

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