Creativity Boot Camp Day One: Ivory

I thought long and hard about whether or not to take this plunge, but like I said...I'm not happy unless I'm overworked and underpaid. This experience, however, will be rich in rewards so I went ahead and decided to go for it.

Today's topic was the word, Ivory. I decided that my medium would be writing since that is what I'm best at...and since I had a super hard time with this word I wrote a quick blurb on my lunch break.

Imagine you and me
Vacant heart's
Our tears combining into one
Reminiscent of days gone by
Years fade...wonderment of what could have been

I'm not a poem writer, but I gave it a valiant effort.


  1. Yay for poems! I teach fifth grade and my kiddos love doing acrostics! I think your poem sounds dreamy, just like I think "ivory" would be. Good job. My medium is photography... it's my hobby as a busy, busy teacher. Feel free to check out my blog...

    Happy boot campin!

  2. So simple yet so vivid and telling. Lovely.

  3. hey, stranger! you're writing! i can't wait to see more from you. great poem, great start! see you soon!

  4. So lovely :) I adore using those sorts of exercises to get the creativity going. Also doing writing, seems like we're in the minority!
