Poem: Thought Process

I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.

Poem Summary

Thought process is a poem inspired by John Hansen's challenge to use each word in a sentence to write a poem. This poem tells how the gears in her brain works when she is writing a poem. It's like elves send her magical messages while playing with a toy only she understands. She has fun, but boys have no clue.

Writing Challenge by John Hansen

John Hansen is a writer here on Hubpages and other social platforms. He is the administrator of a website “The Creative Exiles” which is for poets and writers. (see link below)

He mostly enjoys writing poetry, but dabbles with other genre’s.

He is a freelance writer on Fiverr.

John has tempted us Hubbers with a writing challenge. He wants us to take a sentence and use each word from that content to begin a new line to create a poem or story.

I must admit I have never heard of writing this way, so it definitely challenged me.

I wasn't sure where I was going to find a sentence to use for this writing task, but my trusted mobile phone helped out.

I opened my kindle app and I saw a book I had placed in my library months back.

My Sentence Is...

I chose my content from a book written by one of our very own Hubbers, Clive Williams.

"Santa’s Lost Pup Chills"

It was published in November of 2017.

I found this book on Kindle Unlimited.

The sentence I picked from this book is below.

Gears were rolling as elves designed beautiful toys for girls and boys.

Thought Process

Gears churning in her brain

were moving at full speed ahead,

rolling her eyes to the sky

as if to find the perfect words,

elves sending magical messages

designed for her understanding,

beautiful expressions to write,

toys she loves playing with

for no one else can comprehend,

girls gotta be romantic

and have some fun,

boys have no clue.


Thank You, John

John, thank you for this challenge. I hope you enjoy the poem I have written.

I encourage everyone to attempt this at least once. It's a lot of fun.

When we enjoy writing, we tend to write more.

Manatita44,

Thank you.

That's just where my muse took me while I was writing this poem for John's challenge.

But it is truly how my brain seems to work sometimes.

I am happy I got to use a sentence from a book written by one of our own.

Thank you Clive!

Have a great day.
