Relay Poems Writing Exercise

Set yourself a timer of 5 minutes. Write a short poem, maybe from a prompt. Then take a word or image from that. Write another poem in 5 minutes. Then repeat again, with a word or image from the second poem.

In this way you build up a linked sequence of poems.

I stole this exercise from Inua Ellam's sublime book The Actual, where each poem is linked to the previous one.
