Hey everybody, I thought I’d share a writing prompt for those of us that are looking for creative ways to fill up our portfolios! I, personally, have a lot of made-up words unique to me that float around in my vocabulary and confuse friends and family members. I thought it would be cool to write a poem that attempts to define those made-up words. Here’s mine:
A “bubbin” is a tiny critter, soft
who scampers from shoulder to shoulder.
She is shared, co-parents for those silly feets
gnarled, delicate pink toes and scaly tail
but when she boggles, bruxes, buries herself in my shirts
buries herself in my shirts
Her name is a shortened version of the warmth
I keep secure in my chest,
I hope everyone has fun with this silly prompt, I know I did!
