Wednesday WordPlay: A Numbers Game

Today's writing exercise is a poetry challenge:

First, grab a pen and a sheet of paper.

Next, write your phone number, including the area code, vertically along the left side of the page. Each number should be at the beginning of its own line.

Now write a ten-line poem. The number of words you write in each line should be the same as the number that appears at the beginning of that line.

For example, my area code in New York City is (212). The top of my page would look like this:




My first line of my poem would have two words. The second line would have one word. The third line would have two again, and so on through the rest of my phone number. Got it?

Give it a try!
