Poem Idea - Board Games

Board games provide entertainment and a glimpse of simpler times. There were games with chips, games with knights, games with dice, and games with large mouth animals. Think of what they represent. Think of who played the games with you. Think of what it felt like to win. Think of what it felt like to fall short of the king, the prize, the last ladder.

There are many reasons to write about a board game. Try leaving out the title. Or, at the very least, leave it out until the end of your piece. Describe the details so that your readers know the game before you finish. Put all the details in there with rhymes, no rhymes, or random sentence structures. Use your memory to recreate your games of life… Post it here, or share elsewhere, but write and enjoy…
