Creative Copy Challenge

Thanks to @gjmarketer on Twitter I learned there is a website called Creative Copy Challenge, where the blog owner challenges writers to create content and include random words that he provides for readers to use in their comment.  This was similar to my Random Twitter Poetry game where I craft poems that include random words submitted on Twitter and I decided to take up the challenge on December 20th for Creative Copy Challenge 102 and I created a poem in less than 5 minutes and tossed it into the comment area just to test myself.

With the following 10 words provided in the challenge:

  1. Rush
  2. Pilates 
  3. Pump
  4. Lozenge
  5. Indigo – the hue between blue and violet; a shrub; a blue dye;
  6. Equestrian
  7. Survivor
  8. Blur
  9. Friends
  10. Winding

I came up with the following poem:

Equestrian Survivor

A savage rush winding over you
as friends pump fists into the air
movement a blur of indigo and brown
rehearsed forms like choreographed Pilates
yet defeat tastes like a bitter lozenge
and you are once again, for the last time
just a lonely equestrian survivor

-Poem by Justin Germino
