Elvis Has Left the Building

It’s done. The last day of both challenges. I’m going to miss it. I’ve met some new people, read some interesting blogs, and cemented current friendships. Not that we have to stop, but now we won’t be required to keep up with our blogs or visit others. It will be a change to sit down and realize that I don’t have to post if I don’t want to. But, I am proud of the work I’ve done. I stayed challenged and learned some new techniques.

The last poetry prompt was to write a poem backwards. Make your ending first and your beginning last. For my final poem I chose to write a palindrome, which does exactly that. I took some liberty with it, though, as is my artistic right. It’s been fun, and I hope a lot of the people who have visited continue to keep stopping by.

Final Blogging letter: Z

Things change in an instant

And you’re left wincing from the sting,


Scraped from the inside out,

Heart fragmented,

Left to wither in your shaking hand.


Shaking in your hand,  left to wither,

Fragmented heart,

From the outside in, scraped,


Wincing, you’re left the sting and,

Change things in an instant.
