Tis Poetics night at dVerse and Lillian is hosting with this intriguing prompt:
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.
rain me a symphony of sacred sounds
and rhythm me a moment of magic
dance me up a duet of divine delectation
and instrument me in a style of your choosing
let me tumble myself in the spirals of your soft voice
and whisper a song of spirit to the essence of you
sonnet me a melody of the wild North wind
and heart my heart with a silken ribbon of light
gamma me golden then skeleton my soul
and dawn my awakening
