Whilst we eagerly await the next edition of PoARTy, available this Saturday, let us celebrate CREATIVITY!
Unleash your inner artist and let creativity run wild! From painting to poetry, there’s no limit to what you can create. So, grab your brushes, pens, or whatever inspires you, and let the magic of imagination take over.

Here is a fun Poetry Prompt: Cut out headlines or phrases from magazines or newspapers to make a found poem. Bonus points if it is about creativity:)
And, another prompt: “Ode to ….” —> look http://DaysoftheYear.com for inspiration. E.g., World Otter Day (May 31st) inspired this nonsense wordplay:
The mother of the other otter ought to utter another mutter.
The bother of the utter that the other mother muttered might
be better left a letter to unpack.
She may let you pet her when she floats upon her back,
with her little button nose and teeny wiggly toes.
The otter (not the other) is the brother, who got her popcorn,
but her popcorn is unbuttered, what a bother!
