So, here’s our prompt for today’s Poetics from the lovely Lillian at dVerse.
Verbification, or verbing, is the creation of a verb from a noun, adjective, or other word. Think of the proper name, Google. It’s the name of a company and yet has become a verb as in, “I’ll google that.” Sometimes, as in this example, repetitive use actually turns a noun into a commonplace, albeit new for a while, verb.
BUT – what I’d like you to do today is to write a poem that includes your own unique verbification.
Here’s a wee verbified Haiku!!
hat me crookedly
willow me all bendy-form
verb me haiku like
