A Pagan Magnetic Poetry Kit?

Magnetic Poetry hails from my home state of Minnesota and I love the story behind how they started their company. I think that all their kits are great, but I do have a question for them - Why don't you have kits for religions other than Christianity?

I have been looking at the different Magnetic Poetry kits that are produced by the company and they have kits for book lovers, cat lovers, dog lovers, cliches, pick-up lines, put downs as well as their regular kits. And of course, they have a Christian kit.

Don't misunderstand, I am not complaining that they have a Christian kit. I am just wondering why they don't have other religion kits. Why stop at just one? There are so many other people out there that would enjoy a kit that is specifically for their religious path. I would love to see other religions represented in the Magnetic Poetry world.

That got me thinking - what words would I want in a Pagan Poetry Kit? Here is the start of my (very basic) list:

above
air
alter
Beltane
breath
below
circle
candle
earth
element
energy
fall
fire
Godddess
God
Heathen
Imbolc
Lammas
Lughnasadh
Mabon
magic
Midsummer
moon
Mother
nature
natural
Ostara
Pagan
prayer
ritual
Samhain
spell
spirit
spring
stars
stone
summer
sun
Yule
water
winter
Witch

What words would you like to see?

You need a lot more verbs (draw, chant, cast) ;) You can't really make a poem w/o verbs

I've often wondered the same thing when I see the books that are Chicken soup for the blank blank soul...example.. Chicken soup for the dog lovers soul...They offer stories and such for dog lovers. I've seen them for everything under the sun except for Pagans. Christians have them, even golf lovers have them..Sigh...Oh well, maybe someday

Eden - That was only a very basic list. Free free to add more words to the list through comments! :) (I like your suggestions thus far!)

Autumn - There is a book like that for Pagans, but it's not part of the Chicken Soup series. I can't remember what it is called.

Have you written to the company about it?

Sojourner said...

No, I haven't yet, but I was thinking about it.

Sojourner, I posted on this last night (creating a do-it-yourself set by combining a few available from fridgedoor.com) and wouldn't you know, this morning Steph from The Witch Within found a solution for us! Odd Bodkins!

Sojourner said...

Yeah Steph! That looks like a great set, and it is less expensive than Magnetic Poetry. (The $11 price is Canadian.)

Thanks for the heads up, Nixie!

green, faery, quarters, light, dance... how many magnets does a set usually have? Maybe the company is owned and run by a Christian, and so is focused more on the type of product that would be familiar and comfortable. *runs excitedly off to check out Odd Bodkins*
