‘Surprise’ – it was no surprise that this word, used frequently in our language, brought much variation with the direction of the poems this week.
‘Naked’ – what does it say to you? Where does it take you? Naked; a term that could apply to things that are no longer disguised or covered.

‘Scam’ – a word that arrived and unfortunately nowadays, is something that has meaning for many of us in some way or other.
