Snow Day

ACT 1. Scattered skies and snowing

(individual w/ assistance)

A piece of paper for every poet. Each poet tries to write 10 nouns that represent a recent snow day while the pomist to their left tugs their paper and turns it and messes with them. Each pome plays the wind and the snow at the same time. The snow should cover the paper somewhat evenly.

 

ACT 2. Snowcover

The pomists take their paper and pass it to their shaker. The shaker now writes an 6-line pome, each line focusing on one of the nouns on the page.

 

ACT 3. Snow melt

The pomists pass the page to the right. The pomists now do an erasure of the pome passed to them.

 

ACT 4. Snow day acrostic

Pick one of the nouns you wrote down in round one, write it down as an acrostic for the pomist to your left.

 

ACT 5. Pastiche pome

Rip a paper into many pieces, each big enough for one short line.

  1. Every pomist writes down a pome on a little paper that uses the word, ‘without.’
  2. Every pomist writes down a pome on a little paper that uses the word, ‘upon.’
  3. Every pomist writes down a pome on a little paper that uses the word, ‘toward.’

Arrange the pomes so each column’s rows are without then upon then toward.

 

ACT 6. Haiku

Each pomist writes the first line of a haiku then passes it to the left. More passing to finish the haikus.
