Explore Your Wild Side

I don’t know about y’all, but I’m having a fairly decent day. I took the younger boys to the park while my second oldest is at a band competition, and in a few hours my neighbors are throwing a party and they’ve invited us. The kids get to play while the...

It’s Elemental, My Dear Sherlock

I have no excuses for posting late today. I procrastinated quite deliberately. I’ve sort of had the doldrums the past few days and I managed to work myself out of them by getting out of the house, away from the kids, and going to go see The Martian. (Go see that,...

Once Upon A Winter Day

I can say with no small amount of truth that I didn’t see this poem coming. To say it took me by surprise is an understatement, and I am truly trying to keep the tears from falling as I write this for you. Today’s prompt was to write about a color...

When The Wrong Road Ends Up Being Right

Today’s OctPo prompt put an ironic smirk on my face this morning. The title and ending for my poem yesterday I took from Frost’s famous poem. And today we’re supposed to write about that other road-the one we took that made all the difference. Interesting. I didn’t do that specifically. Somehow...

OctPoWriMo Day 6-Freedom

Writing Cinematically

OctPoWriMo Day 2-write cinematically. An interesting concept for me. Pick your favorite movie or video, mute it and pay close attention to a scene. Then write a poem in that way. Truth is, I’m not certain I have a favorite movie. I honestly cannot come up with my favorite. There are...
