Alpha poems

July 25, 2014

At the start of my ‘Sanctuary’ project, I mind stormed the word and come up with some unusual suggestions.
I have since narrowed them down into the following Alpha poem for further thought:
Asylum
Book
Cage
Dream
Embassy
Folly
Green (room)
Hole
Island
Journal
Kinship
Launchpad
Microcosm
Nest
Orb
Prison
Quarter
Ruins
Solar
Touchstone
Urn
Vault
Womb
Xystus
Yard
Zariba
Several of the above have found their way into subsequent poems based on the theme, and one has provided an unexpected metaphor for the collection.
If you are embarking on a new creative project or piece of writing, you might like to try this idea to tease out subconscious connections.
It would be interesting to hear what results it produces.
