Have no fear, help is here! There are many excellent sites for Words of the Day. Some of them include trending words as well—words that are the most looked up at that moment in time. For today's stretch, what say we get hip, with-it, happening dude, by riffing off the trend:

Poetry Challenge #47

Trending Poetry

For this poem, you need to collect five words and see what you can do with them.

One of my favorite sites for words for all ages is Merriam Webster’s Word Central. Look at the Buzzwords Archive and grab the first five words. If you need definitions, click on the word. Then write a poem/story/something using those words.

In case you can’t look them up, this week's words are:

08 / 10 / 2018 celery
08 / 09 / 2018 roil
08 / 08 / 2018 wombat
08 / 07 / 2018 tense
08 / 06 / 2018 temblor

Feel free to use these words or look them up any day and use what you find to create a way cool-happening-with it-trendy poem.

Set the timer for 7 minutes.

Start writing!

Don’t think about it too much; just do it.
