Written for: dVerse Poets Pub - Compound Me! (posted by Lillian)
"Today, I want you to compound me! BUT, there’s several tricks/requirements to this prompt.
. I want you to choose at least one compound word from the list below to
use in your poem. You may choose to use more.
. FOR EACH COMPOUND WORD YOU DO USE, I want you to take apart the compound
word within your poem. You can do that by a) putting the first half of
the compound word at the end of a line and the second half of the
compound word immediately at the beginning of the next line OR b) by
separating the two halves of the compound word with punctuation. You
MUST separate the two root words that make up the compound word.
. You may NOT put additional words between the two root words, and you
may NOT add a letter to either of the root words.
. In other words, the root words must be used exactly as they appear in
the compound word!"
Here’s the list you can choose from:
He acted the fool, making her cross.
Walking away was her best move.
Summer afternoon proved hot.
Dog refused to walk.
Like drops of honey,
dew delicately topped roses.
Face in the full moon?
Light playing tricks.
She stood under bright stars
fishing for a compliment.
