Poem Soup

soup pot

Pour four cups of inspiration onto a large page
Add a dash of ideas from other poems on the topic
Warm over medium heat until fragrant

Dice two to four cups of phrases
mined from past journal entries
Stir into the inspiration mix

Sprinkle in spices of wordplay to taste
Simmer an hour or more to blend flavors,
stirring occasionally as needed

Revise, edit, and simmer some more
Toss in a graphic before serving
