The Lunatic, the Lover, and the Poet

Shakespeare Had It Right

You’ll be seeing two separate posts today. One for yesterday that I completely missed, and today’s current one (which may come later today). Yesterday was Tornado’s birthday and I was busy beyond belief. Plus, we have begun storm season in the DFW metroplex and lately we’ve been getting a lot of...

Writing A Landay

I’m really glad we have Sunday’s off on the Blogging A to Z Challenge because there is no way I’d be able to come up with a subject for today’s NaPoWriMo prompt that would work in collaboration with it. Today we had to write a landay. Click on the word and...

A Plethora of P’s

Today’s poem is on the short side but I enjoyed writing it. Since today’s Blogging Challenge letter is P, I had a number of ideas that I could have worked into today’s NaPoWriMo challenge. We were to write a poem about an urgent journey with an important message. There were no...

Social Media Poetry? Absolutely!

Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt was an unusual one. Take social media updates and create found poetry. Interesting. And I knew exactly which one I wanted to do. Happily, I cannot take credit for any of the words in this poem. They are gorgeousness to the power of ten and belong to a...

Stuck On Repeat

How many of you are old enough to remember turntables? Remember when you’d get a scratch or a single small hair or something and then the needle would catch on it and repeat the same phrase over and over until you moved the arm? That’s what today’s NaPoWriMo prompt reminded me...

Message From A Poem

Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter M NaPoWriMo: A poem that addresses itself or some aspect of itself. I’m not sure if I met the prompt’s guidelines but I feel I covered the IDEA of the prompt. Hope you like it. I wrote a Minute Poem, a 12-line poem consisting of...

What Really Happened In London

I apologize for the late post but better late than never. Short and quick today. Blogging A to Z Challenge: letter L; NaPoWriMo challenge: write a dialogue poem. Hopefully, that’s self-explanatory. Hope you like my response. (If you haven’t guessed, I’m a big fan of tongue-in-cheek poetry.) xo Jesi   Libellous...

Happy Accidents

So, I got my hands on a copy of Trigger Warning by Neil Gaiman today. I’ll let you know what I think when I’m done. Actually, it was kind of an accident I think. I had only just this weekend put my name on the hold list for this book and...

I Need A Break

I am so tired today. Everything is too loud, too noisy, too bright, too something. I’m glad I only have to deal with one challenge today. Because I’m not sure my brain could deal with the stress. Today’s NaPoWriMo prompt is to write descriptive prose then cut out all the unnecessary...

Beware The Judgement Of The Muse

I will not lie. Today’s NaPoWriMo challenge gave me a headache. But, I did learn something. Sappho was one crazy poetic freak of nature. The Muse created her to drive the rest of us insane. We had to write a Sapphic poem today. It has a strict meter (not iamb, but...
