I know I’ve missed a few days, but my internet server has been down.  So, here we are on day eight with the following assignment

 

TUESDAY, APRIL 8: BEAUTIFUL INLAW
(BEAU PRESENT)

Select a name from one of your newspaper articles, famous or
not. Compose a poem using only words that can be made from
the letters in that person’s name. For example, if you selected
“John Travolta,” you may only use words that can be made from
the letters A, J, H, L, N, O, R, T and V.

The use of web-based tools is highly encouraged to help uncover
different words that can be made from your letters of choice.
One tool you might consider is the Scrabble Word Finder
(http://www.scrabblefinder.com/

 

My word Was Jon Griffin

 

And this is what I came up with;

 

The tested Day taken

The sad week

The Dusty decade

I am an avid reader who loves weird/speculative fiction. But, I also read literary fiction.  I love talking about books and hope you love listening to me. I started reading when I was young and never stopped. I like books that  explore new worlds in old ways and old worlds in new ways. I like books that tell old stories in new ways. I love tales of the weird. I like poems that tell stories and stories that read like poems
