WRITE A COLORFUL TRIANGULAR POEM
Choose a color.
Close your eyes and picture the color.
Search your memory and your imagination for objects of the chosen color.
Write these objects down in the shape of a triangle.
Place one object in the first line, two in the second, three in the third:
Describe each object (or emotion or landscape or phenomenon) with a word, a couple of words, a fragment or perhaps a quote.
Whether you’re writing on paper or a computer, write in the color you’re writing about.
Use A4 horizontal format or the so called landscape orientation for more space.
Write another triangular poem in another color. Continue with different colors, if you like.
Yellow, or violet, perhaps.
Write three triangular poems in different colors.
Make a triangle composition out of the three triangles.
If you like, continue with more triangles and a bigger triangular composition.
YET ANOTHER VARIATION
Choose the color that felt most important or relevant to you.
It could be the most exciting one, or the one that felt most safe.
The one that activated resistance, or the one that allowed healing.
It is, of course, entirely up to you.
Write a triangular poem in a color of your choice, and this time write as many lines as you have time, space or words for.
Remember, just add an extra object per line.
VARIATION WITH THINGS INSTEAD OF WORDS
Instead of using words, make a colorful triangular poem with things found in your home.
