The other part is the spontaneous images caused by which words are juxtaposed on my fridge. Images or phrases that I wouldn't have thought of appear, and become a springboard. Of course, then see the above paragraph -- where I want to take it is not necessarily where the magnets will let me.
It will be interesting to see how this continues over the month. So far, creating each poem has been a challenge, although they do feel much more finished than the year I wrote a poem (from scratch) each day during April. That year, I felt like I had 30 unfinished drafts, many without promise. One or two turned into what I think are good poems. I wonder what the long-run result of these poems will be?

I got several different boxes for this project, and as you can see, the words are larger in the supplementary boxes! Grr, as the haiku would say. So please ignore the unintentional emphasis created by the sizes. Not quite what I had in mind.
Anyway, here it is, poem number 1. What did you come up with? Post in the comments!
