MORE THAN WORDS
by Michael       Webb
http://www.TheRomantic.com/

Finally.  Athena went away for  the weekend. It’s not that I was
getting tired of her — I just needed a few  hours alone to create
a special gift for her.

I’m sure most of you  have seen the magnetic poetry kits at gift
shops. They contain a hundred or  so individual words with magnetic
backing that can be arranged to create  refrigerator poetry. I
think they’re a great idea, but I wanted to make a set  that was
more personalized.

First I went to the office supply store  and purchased a pack of 25
magnetic backs for business cards. They cost about  5 bucks. I measured
the magnetic pieces and created the appropriate margins  in my word
processing program.

Then I began typing. I put in over two  hundred poetry words like
“stars, flicker, moonlight, touch, and gentle.”  Then I added
personalized words such as “Athena, Michael, travel, best,  friend,
sweetheart, cutest, girl” and other nick-names and words that  would
have special meaning to the two of us.  Of course I included  liberal
amounts of “a, an, the, I, and, but” and suffixes and prefixes  like
“s, ed, pre, sub, extra, ly, ing” and so on.

I printed out all  the words and then placed them on top of 20 of
the magnets. Then, I used  clear shelving paper and placed it on top
of the paper for a protective  layer. I used a razor utility knife
and scissors to cut the words  apart.

Then I rummaged up a little box and put all the pieces inside.  I
created a label on the computer that said “More Than Words” and put
it  on the box. It was ready to greet Athena when she came back from
her  trip.

By now, some of you are saying “that sure does sound like a  lot
of work to me. I don’t have any spare time to do anything like
that.”  The whole project probably took me about 2 or 3 hours. It
is true that you  probably don’t have the time in one sitting to
create this. However, if you  took 10 to 15 minutes of your lunch
break every day, you could have it done  in a couple of weeks.

If it still seems overwhelming for you, you can  always buy the
romance edition of the Magnetic Poetry at gift stores. It  won’t be
personal, but it still is a nice  gift.
