Magnetic Poetry: "Abroad"



I used two separate apps to create this:  a magnetic poetry app and a wallpaper app.

Usually I find a picture that appeals to me, then I work the words around it.

  6. A great visual so appealing and the picture is perfect for your poem....liberty and the feeling of going somewhere...anywhere carefree.

  7. a friend has these magnetic words on her fridge and when you go there one is compelled to leave a message...cool concept for creating a poem.

  8. This is very deep and evocative, especially the haunting way in which you describe the omens. It sounds like she's happy to be at home or in nature. But I think maybe she's being led somewhere tantalizing but dangerous. Away from the burning bush (or maybe toward, depending on the kind to which you're referring). I like the double meaning in the title (both "abroad" and "a broad"). A woman taking the wide path, perhaps, when she knows she should stick to the narrow one. I suppose it depends on what exactly she finds "azure, alive, and charming." If it's the sky, then she's probably safe. If it's a guy, then she might be in for some trouble.
