Anyone can write a poem. It doesn’t even need to rhyme! What makes a poem good, is the feeling and emotion behind the words.  This activity helps to unlock creativity by forcing one to write words while being timed.

You will need a piece of paper, pencil and a timer.

Right an emotion you are struggling with or feel strongly about down the middle of your paper. See example below…

H

A

P

P

Y

Now it is time to set the timer and get busy filling in words and phrases that begin with each letter all the way down. See example below…

H aving family

A ppreciating time

P ainting

P ossibilities

Y es this is a wonderful life and it’s mine!

This exercise forces creativity and it can also be fun to see what is created. It can also be an enjoyable activity to do in a group.

 

Here’s mine, which happens to be my driving core value:)

E xpressing who I am!

e X cited to finally not feel like I need to hold back!

P assionately sharing me!

R eally being real!

E motionally exposing myself!

S peaking the truth!

S haring what I feel inside!

I nner self being revealed!

O penly connecting at a soul level!

N othing holding me back!
