Feeling poetic?

Image
Writing poetry seems quite difficult for English learners. But here's a fun way to do it: using Google's autocomplete feature. When you start typing into the Google search box, a couple of suggestions will come up. These are based on previous searches from other people. Now the trick is: start to think of these lines as a poem. Many times it's grotesque, shockingly deep or just sounds very artistic.
It's a lot of fun to play around with, and you'll learn a lot of words and expressions unconsciously while experimenting.


When you find something you like, you can take a screenshot of your "poem" and share it.
You can also upload them to the Google Poetics page, where there is a nice collecion of the best ones.
