Taking the ninth book from your bookshelf, opening up at the ninth page, selecting the first sentence from the ninth line and creating a Nine line poem from whatever the sentence suggests & inspires you to do.
(I recently did this as a 7x7x7x7 poem)
This time it’s 9x9x9x9 and my ninth book on the shelf is Atlantis by David Gibbins. (click the link for more info on this book)
On page 9 the sentence on the ninth line is:
‘His dripping shape was quickly surrounded by other members of the team who had been waiting on the diving platform.’
Tiny bubbles in my blood
Resist the pressure – if only I could
A curtain of silt and my hand moves so slow
Touching the past, re-connecting through stone
The glint of gold, untarnished by time
It cries ‘leave me alone’ – it is not mine!
Chambers & tombs and an eerie world
Illuminating glow, reveals a girl
Ethereal beauty, encrusted with pearls.
Challenge – why not give it a go?!
See what you come up with.
