Poetry Prompt: Today, I’d like to challenge you to make a “Personal Universal Deck,” and then to write a poem using it. Basically, you will need 50 index cards or small pieces of paper, and on them, you will write 100 words (one on the front and one on the back of each card/paper) using the rules found here.

All in the Cards

One in fifty

I wrote all the words I thought were nifty

Words that resonate

That activate

My senses

Words that define

That I believe are mine

But not exclusive

Aromas that fling me fast

To remind me of people long, long past

Words that make me feel

Sometime seem unreal

Yet there they are

Words that trigger vision

That needed no revision

That were perfect

Words that stick in my ear

My favorite song that brings a tear

Every time

Words that make me taste

Without waste

The salt and sweet

I shuffled and cut

Placed them in front as the rain began to pour

Drew the first card

Then added one more
