about a bowl of random words

Welcome to a bowl of random words.

I have always been amazed how seemingly unrelated things can find a meaningful place together in the creative process.

I have created a bowl of random words to inspire and challenge.

At random, I will post words pulled  from a bowl.

You can use them to write a poem.

You can rearrange the words or use them in the order as they have been pulled out of the bowl.

Submit your poem in the comments under the posted words.

Enjoy and I look forward to your creations.
