Word Association – #EthicalELA Open Write #3
Today’s prompt asked us to look around our space and notice an object, then go through an exercise of word associations with the object. I cheated… only a little… and took the idea of the prompt. Word associations are commonly used in improv warmups and practices as a way to help the players focus and really connect with their fellow performers, so that was the first word that popped into my mind.
hands loosely grasped
heads bowed in concentration
waiting, focusing, seeking
that one mind
that leads all
to the same conclusion
and a bout of laughter
Thanks, Kevin. Never any apologies necessary. I’ve been leaving my comments on your poems on the ethicalela site. I never know whether I should also circle back to people’s blogs!
I really love this one — the way you move the reader through the actions, and end on laughter. (Sorry it took me a few days to come back here to comment)
